Can Guinea Pigs Eat Sapodilla?

You may be wondering what the heck sapodilla is- we sure were. This small tan fruit looks kind of like a brown kiwi without the seeds. You can sometimes find it fresh at Asian or Latin markets. It is also known as sapoche or sapote. And it is absolutely delicious!

Weird looking, but totally tasty. Sapote/Sapoche/Sapodilla is very high in natural sugar, so don't give your guinea pig more than a small taste. We gobbled ours up in mere seconds and wheeked loudly for more. 

Quick tip to humans- you can blend the flesh of the fruit with some milk, ice and sugar to make a delicious milkshake with a tropical malt flavor.
