Sapodilla

Sapodilla (Moss Tree, Wood Potato, Oil Tree, Ahra, Sapodilla, Prang khaa, La-mut, Naseberry, Chiku) is native to Mexico and is now grown almost everywhere in the tropical countries of America and Asia.

Mostly oval, sometimes round fruits (up to 10 cm in length) are covered with a thin skin of brown shades from light to dark, ripe fruits should be dark and soft. The pulp is very delicate, juicy, browned, sometimes with a pink tint. It tastes like caramel, one of my favorite fruits. Inside the fetus there are a dozen seeds, each has a hook, so you need to be careful not to swallow them accidentally, otherwise they can catch in the throat with this hook (but the bones are very easily separated from the pulp and I did not have problems with them).

It is unfortunate that such a delicious fruit can be stored for no more than 3 days, because of this, it can be tasted only in the growing regions or in the countries closest to them (Russia, as you understand, does not apply to them).

Sapodilla contains potassium, a lot of vitamin C, there is calcium, iron, healthy carbohydrates, and, of course, fiber.
