You won’t believe what fell into our lap! A small batch of local black sapote, also called black soap apple, the sumptuous chocolate pudding fruit that our Tropifruiters have been clamoring for. This is just the type of fruit that you get to brag about on your Instagram or YouTube channel. It’s that wow of an experience.
It’s a close cousin of the persimmon and has an amazing flavor profile. Whenever you think the black sapote is ready to be thrown away, it’s actually when it’s ready. Why do we say that? When its ripe, it gets really wrinkly and the skin starts to look like a Chinese Shar-Pei dog (you know, the ones with the wrinkly skin) and when ready, the skin turns into a brownish and olive-green color. When you cut it, the flesh is a dark brown chocolatey color that feels like you just cut into a fresh chocolate lava cake.
The texture is custard-like and incredibly smooth. It has a sweet subtle flavor, with a hint of roasted butternut squash and a honey finish, creating a delightful tasting experience that’s just incredibly hard to replicate.
