Black sapote and persimmon

    7 responses

Thithi starts with ...
I never have a black sapote before and heard that it does not taste like chocolate pudding at all on another thread.
Just wondering how does it taste comparing with persimmon as it is related to persimmon? Is it similar?

Of course it doesnt taste exactly the same as chocolate pudding , but at 95% the same isnt bad. Some palates detect other tastes and of coarse you must have a properly ripened good specimen. A small part is psychological because you see it similar to chocolate pudding. But whats wrong with that if it works for you. By adding in some whipped cream they taste even better. It is different to normal kaki persimmon. There is a cultivar of brown fruited kaki persimmon that I have never seen so I dont know how that one compares. If it is similar to choc pudding fruit then you could grow it instead in colder winter climates.

Black sapote doesn't taste like chocolate pudding, or anything like it. This isn't a reason not to eat them though. If you like it, you like it.

A drop of Bailey's mixed in goes a long way. They were meant for each other.

Thanks everyone for answering my question. Look like I have to try the fruit myself. Where can I buy them, Safeway Coles? Are they sweet or bland?

Hi Thithi

Black Sapotes can be readily bought in a number of fruit shops in my area like Springvale, Keysborough and Knox when in season. Season is not now but over summer. I find them not much taste and watery or mushy without texture but you're supposed to eat them overripe and soft.

I'm surprised you want to grow so many difficult species here when there are easier ones more suitable for Melbourne's conditions.

If you really want to have something that tastes like tropical fruit, then you should grow Asimina triloba - American Paw Paw. It tastes just as good and even more delicious than anything that grows in tropical zones. Cheers!

Thanks Linton, i will look for black sapote in summer. Probably bs is at the back of the 'list of things that I want to grow' for now. American paw paw is interesting. Thanks linton, i didnot know there was such plant. I looked it up on YouTube and yaminarareplants sell them for $35. It would be great for pawpaw lovers. I am more of jackfruit, mango, longan, star apple... person. The reason that I grow tropical papaya was Bunnings sold it for $10, and it looked so healthy so i thought what's a cute plant, worth a try.
Thanks again for the information

Attention Thithi

No! American Paw Paw is not Pawpaw! It tastes nothing like a Pawpaw and is not even remotely related to Red Pawpaw or Papayas.

From the outside it looks like a mango, but tastes much better, and easy to grow in Melb. Cheers.
