Sapodilla, also known as Manilkara zapota, Nispero or Naseberry is believed to have originated in Yucatan and other parts of Southern Mexico, and is commonly called the Sugar Apple or Sugar Fruit.
Sapodilla skin is brown with a smooth, sandy texture. The juicy flesh of the fruit is very sweet and many compare it to brown sugar, with hints of granulated sugar crystals. Within the flesh there are a few black seeds that are inedible.
Fresh ripe sapodilla is a good source of minerals like potassium, copper, iron and vitamins like folate, niacin and pantothenic acid. These are essential for human health as they are involved in various metabolic processes in the body.
