Indulge in the unique flavor of Black Sapote, also known as the "Chocolate Pudding Fruit. Did you know that Black Sapote, scientifically known as Diospyros nigra, is not related to Mamey Sapote or White Sapote? It's a tropical tree that's native to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and into Colombia. Our Black Sapote are Organically Grown on our farm. When unripe, it's white pulp is astringent, bitter and not pleasant to eat, but as it ripens the skin changes to a deep green/brown and the white flesh takes on the flavor, texture, and color of chocolate pudding, but the dark brown seeds are not edible.
