No, I’m not messing with you, this is real.
It’s called Black Sapote and it is native to Mexico and Central America but harvested in Florida during the months of December-March. Flesh is dark brown to almost black, soft, sweet and mild in flavour. Lucky for us, it’s a good source of vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium and niacin, and is the ultimate ready to eat dessert that Mother Nature can provide us.
There’s plenty of proof out there that eating this fruit fresh is amazing, it also makes the perfect healthy addition to cakes and desserts so we’ve found a couple recipes for you to make with Black Sapote.
