The 'Wilson' Black Sapote is an exceptionally coveted rare tropical fruit tree, also known as Chocolate Pudding Fruit due to its amazingly thick and creamy texture coupled with its warm cacao-like flavor. Native to the tropical/subtropical regions of Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central America, the Black Sapote tree bears abundant fruit when planted in subtropical climates. To tell when the fruit is ripe, look for a muddy green hue on its outer skin. Enjoy it fresh, cooked into desserts or blended into drinks - delish!
