lolz! I never thought cute name ‘chickoo’ will be called as sapodilla in English. Chikoo is cute like rabbit and sapodilla sounds like godzilla!
Anyways I prefer to call it chickoo. This fruit is rich Source of – Antioxidants, vitamins A & C, potassium, copper, iron and vitamins like folate, niacin and pantothenic acid.It is high in fibre.It is often prescribed to help reduce weakness and symptoms of pregnancy such as nausea and dizziness.Contrary to popular belief chickoo is not fattening. In fact the fruit is fat free and its rich sweetness is an excellent way to curb sweet cravings.Native to southern Mexico, Central America and the West Indies.(info from http://bewell.in). It is grown in huge quantities in India.Yes currently it is available in tons. So have an healthy and easiest dessert for once and am sure you will ask for more!
