The sapodilla fruit is brown in color. It
has a kiwi fruit-like texture but the outer surface is without any fuzziness.
The pulp of the fruit is unripe with sticky latex called saponin. As Sapodilla
ripens later on, the white latex gradually disappears. Sapodilla contains three
to five black, smooth, shiny, bean-shaped inedible seeds located at the center
of the fruit. The taste of Sapodilla is
nice and it can be compared to some extent to pears.
