The Black Sapote, or Black persimmon in Hawaii, is widely known as the “chocolate pudding fruit.” The tropical fruit is not actually related to the sapote as the name suggests; it is instead related to the persimmon and is part of the Ebenaceae family. The skin of a Black Sapote is initially an olive green and it will darken as it ripens and will develop the occasional black speckles.
Black Sapotes are high in vitamins A and C, as well as fiber, potassium, calcium and phosphorus. They also contain trace amounts of iron. An extremely rich source of vitamin C with a 100g serving providing 19mg, which is more than 6 times the daily requirement. Small amounts of calcium and phosphorous are also provided.
Guess one black sapote a day really keeps the doc away!
