Chikoo (Sapota) Fruit

Chikoo Fruit (called as “Sapota pazham” in Tamil Nadu) is a rich source of digestible sugar, protein, fibre and minerals like phosphorus, calcium and iron.

The milk like substance (the latex) extracted from the chikoo stem is gummy in structure and used to make the chewing gum. Chicklet is made from the chikoo gum.

Sapota is spray dried, powdered and sold commercially. This sapota powder is used for making Ice-cream, biscuits and other snack items.

In season, we get plenty of this fruit which can be eaten as it is. Just remove the skin and seeds and cut it into convenient size pieces and have it.

Top in the list of Chikoo Recipes is the Milk Shake. Try this out:

    Once the fruit is plucked off the tree you really should keep it in a cool place for a few days to ripen. It tastes much better when it's soft to the touch… otherwise it leaves a sticky feeling in the mouth.

  5. Thank you for the information.
