1. The fruit that tastes like pudding
Also known as the chocolate pudding fruit, the black sapote, grown in Mexico and Central America, tastes bitter if you try to break into its tough skin too early. But if you're willing to wait, you'll get a fruit so creamy and chocolatey delicious, even Bill Cosby wouldn't be able to resist. You'll know the pudding is ready when the sapote's hard green casing has turned black and mushy. Then, just crack open the fruit to reveal a gooey dessert that's been likened to nutty, dark chocolate with exotic fruit undertones.

And while its pineapple-custard flavor is said to be out of this world, if eaten too young, the monster fruit's high level of oxalic acid can cause painful blistering, itching, and loss of voice.
