“Vitamins and minerals in fresh food”


Sapodilla, sometimes called Sapota Not to be confused with the Sapote, like the Black Sapote or the Mamey Sapote. Sapodilla originated in the Mexico and Belize region, but is now grown in other tropical areas such as Cape Tribulation in northern Queensland. The trees produce a lot of fruits and have a real potential of a future market winner. The fruit has a brown, slightly rough skin, a bit between a potato and and a kiwi fruit. The flesh is white and sweet and it turns brown when ripe. There are some seeds, which are not edible.

Vitamins: Vit C (H), B1, B5, B6, B9.

Minerals: Iron, Copper, Magnesium, Phosphorous and Calcium.

Good supplier of dietary fibre and carbohydrates.

A lovely fruit, but not easy to get hold of yet.

Black sapote, also called the Chocolate pudding fruit, is not related, but a yummy fruit, especially fresh, but makes a great chocolate mousse. This fruit looks a bit like the Persimmon and has the same texture, but black.

There is a White sapote and I love the flavour of them fresh only.
