I've been buying Sapodilla Chicos by the bucket load!
Looking a bit like a dark brown kiwi, this exotic fruit has the texture of a overripe pear and the taste of pure brown sugar. Amazing!!
Sapodillas are quite common in Hawaii, southern Mexico, Central America, and throughout the Caribbean. They are the fruit of a very large evergreen tree that can only survive in a warm, tropical climate. Lucky for me, Maui supports the Sapodilla perfectly.
I would imagine these would be insane in a smoothie made with coconut or almond milk, vanilla, and frozen banana but I just can't stop eating them on their own.....
