Taste of new fruits in Mexico City

Black sapote. You have to eat them when they get really ripe and squishy.

A dessert soup of black sapote and orange juice at Contramar.

Granadilla (fruit of the plant Passiflora ligularis). When ripe and ready to eat, the fruit feels hollow and the outer surface is brittle.

Granadilla on the inside. The little jelly like kernels stick to each other gently. They are easy to scoop out with a spoon. The individual kernels burst in your mouth releasing a lightly sweet and refreshing nectar. The seeds are crunchy and somewhat tart.
