Black Sapote is a member of the persimmon family, and, if you look at it, it looks like a green persimmon. The family is kind of cool they all produce these super sweet fruits, in great abundance, with little or no input on the part of the gardener. I bought black sapote fruits, planted the seeds, and ended up with trees. I planted these trees in my garden in Florida and they both grew vigorously and began producing fruit after three years. If you are a permaculture gardener in Florida, this is a fruit you should check out. It is sometimes called chocolate sapote because the fruit looks like chocolate pudding. It does not taste like chocolate, but it looks like it. Some people are put off by persimmons and their squishy texture. This tree produces a mushy fruit in a brown color. I can think of a few other names for the tree, but, I will keep this family friendly. But, the pudding that comes out of the green fruits is truly delicious, and, can factor into all kinds of baking activities. Like make it into pudding!
