The Black Sapote is a Tomato-like fruit, considered a large berry with a thin and firm rind. The inedible skin that turns from olive to a deep yellow-green when ripe. The texture has been likened to that of a papaya.
Black sapote's flesh is rich and custard-like, with a sweet, nut-like mild flavor and the ripe fruit pulp it tastes like mild chocolate pudding - but without the caffeine or calories!
Cultivators can be found in Australia, Florida and the Phillippines.
The fruit is delicious eaten fresh or used as a chocolate substitute in recipes and milkshakes or simply mix the pulp with yogurt and lemon juice for a refreshing treat. Fruits can be cut in half and eaten covered in passion fruit. In Mexico the pulp is mashed with orange juice or brandy and served with cream, it is also delicious mixed with wine, cinnamon and cane sugar.
This could be a chocoholics dream come true.
