Fun Fact: Black Sapote Has About 4X The Amount Of Vitamin C Than An Orange.
Black Sapote, scientifically known as Diospyros nigra is a species of Persimmon and is not related to Mamey Sapote or White Sapote. Black Sapote is also known as Chocolate Pudding Fruit and the tropical tree is native to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and into Colombia. We harvest this fruit locally from Organic Farmers as it can be found in South Florida in abundance.
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
