Chocolate Sapote

This fruit is amazing....

It's a rainforest tree native to Mexico and is pretty hard to find in a supermarket here in Brisbane.

It literally tastes like chocolate pudding with only a hint of sweetness. There are heaps of recipes to google i.e. chocolate fruit cake, ice-cream, milkshakes...

We planted this about 2 years ago. It has probably only doubled in size - very slow growing! You should be able to buy them from Nielson's Native Nursery in Brisbane. If you have the patience, they will grow into a nice lush 8 metre high tree.
