Black Sapote: Are they ripe?

When your fruit arrives, they will be shiny, green and lightweight. They are not ready to eat and need to ripen on the counter at room temperature for about 7 days.

You’ll know your fruits are ripe when the black sapote’s skin is a dark, olive green, and easily yields with gentle pressure from your thumb.

Once the fruit is soft and wrinkly, maybe even looking a little overripe, that’s when you want to dig in! Inside, the black sapote flesh will have a very soft and almost scoopable texture with a rich, chocolate brown color.
