Rodney, doesn't the chocolate pudding overpower the flavor of the black sapote? Last time I ate black sapotes was in Hawaii, I bought some at the Hilo market. From what I recall, they are rather mild flavored. From what I remember, there wasn't any chocolate flavor, although they really look like black chocolate pudding.

This is a picture of the black sapotes I ate:

Persimmons will gell up remarkably. i imagine black sapotes would be similar. If you put persimmons through the blender with milk and vanilla, pour the liquid out, and let it sit a while, you will have a very nice simple pudding. if you prefer something more desserty, a little sugar and maybe some seasoning could be experimented with.

Wow, I knew there's a reason I added a persimmon tree! Yes, black sapotes are in the persimmon family, and I think the flavors are very similar, but the texture is slightly different.

Has anyone tried chocolate persimmons and compared them side by side with black sapotes?

Axel, I found little similarity between chocolate persimmons and black sapote. Chocolate persimmon is sweet, not at all chocolate-flavored to me, and can be eaten in the crunchy stage if it is brown. It does have a touch of spice. If you find them on your tree and they aren't brown, let them soften all the way or they will be astringent.
