Custard apples are usually picked unripe, as they spoil easily when left on the tree. In general, the skin stays green but changes to a cream color between the segments. Some varieties may only show this color change near the stem. You can also squeeze them very gently, and they will 'give' a little, much as an avocado does.

What should you tell the person you like who you like?

If you are ready to tell them, tell them. If they don't like you in that way don't cry about it because you shouldn't change your feelings for someone just because they don't like you back. In other words, if you are not ready to tell them that you like them just say, "I will tell you when I'm ready and when I know you can be trusted." And hopefully they will respect your wishes and not ask about it until you are ready to tell them.
