jumping soursop worms

doodles | Oct 25, 2005 04:43 PM

bought a luscious large soursop on spadina in toronto the other day, which i usually love!

when it was all nice and ripe, i cut if open, noticed a couple of black sooty-type spot on the inside, thought nothing of it, and started to scoop... all of a sudden, nuerous small white worms (same colour as the flesh) started to JUMP out of the fruit and into my sink... i think i ate one... oh gawd, i'm gonna die!

has anyone ever encountered this before? what is it and how do you avoid choosing fruit that are infected?

looked for info on the 'net but wasn't too successful.

yuck yuck yucky yucky!

thanks....
