Learn About Your


Your Sapodilla will be shipped unripe and may begin to ripen during transit. To tell if your Sapodilla are ripe and ready to eat, look to see if they are brown and soft to the touch when you apply gentle pressure with your thumb. These fruit have a short ripening window and will emit a sweet fragrance when ripe. When they are as soft as a ripe avocado it’s time to eat them. The skin may get darker as it ripens and will become patchy in color. This is a normal part of the ripening process. They will perish quickly and should be consumed immediately after ripening.

Too Ripe
Ready to eat.

Sapodilla is best enjoyed ripe and fresh out of hand by spooning out the flesh. Cut the fruit in half lengthwise and scoop out the caramelized and grainy flesh. Voila! Sapodilla will taste like a combination of malty-caramel, pear, brown sugar, and cinnamon. You can also enjoy their unique flavor in smoothies, salads, jams, or dessert. 

Sapodilla tastes best when stored at room temperature. Store on the counter for a few days to ripen as needed. Sapodilla should be consumed quickly after ripening as they tend to lose their flavor after refrigeration. As needed you can store ripe Sapodilla in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Be sure not to store Sapodilla stacked on top of each other or they might get squashed as they’re quite tender. To freeze scoop out the flesh and freeze in an airtight freezer-safe container or plastic bag.
