The Sapodilla, also known as Saps, is another member of the Sapote family. Shipped firm will slowly ripen similar to the Mamey. They have a stunning texture inside. An outrageous light brown color that gives off a "just want eat this" kind of feeling.
The outside of the fruit has a sand papery type skin similar to the Mamey. To eat just cut in half and remove the seed. I like to cut the fruit away from the skin and eat it just like a Melon. The taste of this fruit is extremely full flavored and very sweet. The bark of the tree is very interesting it has a white gummy latex called chicle which is a natural form of chewing gum. Saps contain high amounts of saponin. Enjoy this tropical treat as we have been for many years here in South Florida.
Due to the unusually hot summer, shipping highly perishable fruit is more tricky than usual Some fruit is arriving over-ripe. If you have an issue with your order, please call me. I pack every box myself, and want you to be happy with your fruit!
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the Keys. You are invited to visit our farm for free as a tropical fruit of the month customer. We grow for you!!
