On the odd occasion i like to get some Mango ice cream from TROPICAL in Al Khuwair. It's home made and really creamy. This time being a little adventurous, as I have no idea what the various other ice cream flavours are (they have Indian names for many of them), I decided to try the other flavours. So I ask the guy behind the counter if I can try the Chickoo ice cream. After tasting it and being completely surprised - it was actually very delicious, I asked him what Chickoo is and he looks at me with surprise and says it's a fruit - like I should know what it is! Well I have never heard of this fruit before and actually don't even recognise it after googling it!
So according to Wikipedia -
Sapodilla (Manilkara achras [Mill. (Fosberg)]) is a long-lived, evergreen tree native to southern Mexico, Central America and the West Indies. It is grown in huge quantities in India, Mexico and was introduced to the Philippines during Spanish colonisation.
Sapodilla is known as chikoo ("चिक्कू" or "chiku," "चीकू,") in Pakistan & India and sapota in some parts of India (Tamil Nadu, Karnataka)
I have not seen and did not know that London Dairy make a version of it as well - BUT i must say Tropical's home made version is good enough for me! Mango is OUT for awhile!
