Sapote

Sapote is either white or black. About the size of an orange and shaped like a tomato, this is tropical delight. White Sapote has green skin a vanilla custard-like flavor and creamy texture. This sapote is actually a member of the citrus family unlike the other sapotes. Also called Zapote Blanco, some say it taste like peaches with a hint of lemon; some say it has a taste of pineapple; others describe it as a mix of mango, coconut, caramel and vanilla; and others say it's like orange sherbet. I think it tastes a little like a creamy vanilla caramel pear. It's very unique and quite delicious! Better get two because you won't want to share yours, especially if it's really soft. It's not sweet sweet but has a pleasant sweet flavor. It gets sweeter and more flavorful as it gets softer. The consistency is wonderful - almost like a pudding. 1 cup is 200 calories and is a good source of potassium as well as offering some vitamin C. A nice way to get to your 5-9 a day!
