Black Sapote

Chocolate Pud in a Fruit: How good is that!

The Black Sapote’s a relative of the custard apple and the persimmon, and is very popular South America way. They’re gaining renown here at Harvest Hub

About the fruitBlack sapote on the tree

The fruit is slightly sweet, high in vitamin C (four times the amount found in an orange) and easy to devour, although because it fills you up you have to use all your willpower to overindulge.

To Ripen

Mushy when ripe

Mushy when ripe

A black sapote ripens soft and mushy with the skin turning from bright green to dark brown. When you open it the pulp looks like chocolate pudding but has a mild taste without the sugar.

To prepare

Cut the fruit in half and wiht a spoon scoop out the pulp. Be aware that some seeds are hiding in the pulp so pick these out.

To eat

Unripe fruit proves inedible and astringent so first of all the fruit has to be ripe enough to Black sapote  chocolate pudding fruiteat.  As it ripens the thin green skin darkens and becomes choclatey dark. When the fruit is edible you’ll be able to poke it with your finger and leave an imprint.

As soon as it’s ripe, pop it in the fridge and eat shortly thereafter. The colour when you cut the fruit open and begin to spoon it out is a glossy chocolate brown.  The texture is smooth.  We don’t recommend eating any seeds (if they’re there you’ll notice them) or the skin.

The Black Sapote has a velvety mouthfeel and mixes well with yoghurt, coconut milk and cream, honey and ginger as well as oranges.

Semi-frozen dessert

You could blend it with the juice and zest of an orange and semi-freeze it to make a minimal labour dessert.

Black Sapote Cake

Sapote can be put into a pie like apples are with tangelo zest and finely chopped crystallised ginger for flavour, baked into a cake (to enhance its texture) and turns the finished cake into a dark, chocolatey looking gateau.  Some recipes recommend addingBlack sapote cake 2-3 tablespoons of good quality cocoa powder for the ultimate chocolate taste and melting chocolate mouth feel.  We’d also suggest adding some citrus zest for another burst of flavour.




One Australian grower, Kath, mixes a spoon of melting vanilla ice-cream with a ripe sapote and ascends into chocolate delight.
