Picking Sapotes

I visited my great aunt in Santa Barbara yesterday and came back with loads of white sapotes and a few oranges. Sapotes are also called apple custard. The ripe fruit is very soft, much like custard. (More info here and here.)
The sapotes are the yellowish-green fruit. They grow well in climates that are friendly to citrus. To cut the fruit, I roughly peel it with a knife and then cut it in to chunks. When eating I watch out for the pits which vary in size.
These fruit taste a little like vanilla and like no other fruit. If you have too many, they freeze easily.
My drive to Santa Barbara was very smoky along the 101. The photo below is from the middle of the afternoon. There are so many fires here in Southern California right now.


  1. Beautiful apples! Can't believe that road photo. Stay safe.

  2. Thanks Felicia! Where I live, I'm safe from the fires. It's only a little smoky outside.
