Sapodilla, also known as Manilkara zapota is believed to have originated in Yucatan and other southern parts of Mexico. Our sapodilla is locally sourced from organic farms. Some of the varieties we source are makok, hasya, alano and morena. The main differences between them are the shapes and flesh texture. 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. 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. Sapodilla is available year round with the exception of a few weeks.
Fun Fact: The original chewing gum from South America was made from the sap of the sapodilla tree. This gum was called “Chicle” which is derived from the word “chico sapote”.

Tropical Fruit ripens best in warm temperatures. If you have received fruit that has not ripened and you wish to speed up the ripening process, we recommend to either put your fruit in paper bags or wrapped in a kitchen towel and placed in a dry, warm area. Alternatively, you may also place your fruit outside in the sun (in an area mindful of bugs) which will also speed up the ripening process.
