Black Sapote: How to eat

Remember this fruit has inedible seeds!

  • Cut it in half, all the way around, likely hitting a few seeds nestled on the inside.
  • Pull your halves apart and the large seeds will remain embedded in one half.
  • Scoop a rich and delicious spoonful right out of the fruit’s skin, to enjoy its pudding-like custard.
  • Do not eat the seeds! Discard or save to try and grow your own tree.
  • Enjoy as is or bake into breads, mousse or any other treat calling for subtle sweetness (hint: makes a great substitute for bananas in chocolate chip banana bread).
