Chocolate Fruit

Inilah chocolate fruit

Macam tak percaya jer bila nampak buah ni,
1st time dapat tau tentang buah ni dalam travel channel, rancangan jalan-jalan cari makan gitu.
Semenjak itu terus simpan hasrat nak ke Australia nak merasa buah ni,
plus nak tengok pokok botol jugak la.

Rupa-rupa nya tak payah nak pergi jauh,
kat Sibu pun ada pokok ni, cuma sayang masa kami pergi tu takde buah yang masak,
dah la baru sempat tangkap gambar sikit hujan pun turun dengan lebat.
Tak sempat nak explore lebih.

Pokok Chocolate ni ditanam di Ostrich Farm, Sibu.
Selain pokok chocolate, pokok avocado pun ada ditanam ni di sini;
dan macam-macam buah tempatan yang lain juga ada.

Kepada yang berminat boleh lah menghubungi:

untuk maklumat lanjut.

*Name & Family
Black Sapote, Black Persimmon, Chocolate-Fruit, Chocolate Pudding Fruit

Taste & storage
The Black Sapote is a Tomato-like fruit, 10x13 cm. Large berry with a thin and firm rind.
Its color is shinning dark green with brown specs. The fruit flesh is rich, dark brown colored and custard like and therefore called the Chocolate pudding fruit.

Complete ripe fruits are often ugly brown.
Black sapote's flesh is rich and custard-like, with sweet, nut-like mild flavor and when ripe fruit pulp is blended with milk cream or ice-cream, it tastes like mild chocolate - but without the caffeine or calories!

Tree
It is an evergreen tree and grows up to 8 meters or more.

The chocolate fruit looks a bit like mango. I have never heard of this tree.

TimmyLicious said...

wahhh i didn't know about this fruit. How much are the price of the fruit?

lvynana said...

Mummy Gwen: yup from that angle it look like a mango, but from top it does look like a persimmon.

Timmy: Tak sempat pulak nak tanya harga, we were there to inspect the ostrich actually, but this fruit really caught my attention. I tot of buying some, but it rain heavily after we captured some photos. So tak sempat beli, harga pun tak tanya dah...frust betul..we were rushing, banyak sangat tempat dalam itinerary.
