Black sapote is a type of persimmon native to Mexico. It looks a little like an unripe tomato but has dark brown flesh with the taste and texture of chocolate pudding. Black sapotes were my Abuelo‘s all-time favourite fruit.\
Black sapote is a tropical fruit that resembles an unripe persimmon from the outside, but holds a seriously dark, delicious secret on the inside. The smooth, soft brown inside is a ready-to-eat dessert, or the perfect healthy addition to recipes that call for chocolate. Not only is it low in fat, it’s also a great souce of vitamin C and calcium.
