This morning I was privileged to enjoy a new fruit!!!

It is called Black Sapote - also known as the chocolate pudding fruit!

When ripe, the outside turns from hard and green to soft, mushy, and a dark olive color. I cut it open and the flesh was extremely soft, JUST like pudding! the flavor is very mild, sweet, rich, and very enjoyable. The consistency is a winner.

*EDIT* - I ate a couple more and I have decided that it does NOT taste like chocolate pudding at all.. it just LOOKS like chocolate pudding! =) To me it tastes somewhat like a sweeter version of an avocado. It's rich and mousse-like. Very good.

I can't wait till the rest of them ripen!

I received this fruit and more (canistel and sapodilla) from Taylor at Taylor's Tropicals. He is based out of Florida and ships these delicious tropical fruits anywhere in the U.S. Go to, click on the most recent newsletter in the archive, and order yours today! There is lots to choose from and most of it is organic and farm-fresh!!!!!

Cheers to new fruit experiences!!!!!
