Fun Fact: Black Sapote is a fruit that tastes and feels like chocolate pudding & has About 4X The Amount Of Vitamin C Than An Orange.
Black Sapote, scientifically known as Diospyros nigra is a member of the Persimmon family and is not related to Mamey Sapote or White Sapote. Black Sapote is also popularly known as Chocolate Pudding Fruit due to the flavor and texture being similar to dark chocolate pudding. This tropical tree is native to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and into Colombia. We harvest this fruit locally, from Organic Farmers in South Florida.
Until it's ready to eat the white pulp of the unripe fruit is astringent, caustic, bitter, irritating and not nice to eat. As the skin of the Black Sapote changes to a very deep green/brown when ripe and the white flesh takes on the flavor, texture and color of chocolate pudding. The dark brown seeds are not edible.For Additional Information Visit Our Ripening Guide
