"Chrysophyllum cainito" have very attractive leaves which are deep green above and a silky golden brown beneath, alternate, oval, with 5-15 cm (2-6 "). Fruits are round and purple, generally green around the sepal with a start pattern. The fruit size can be from 5-8 cm (2-3 "), and has very sweet whitish flesh. The skin is rich in latex and is inedible. Seedlings take about six years or more to bear fruit. Fruits are very good usually eaten as a fresh fruit. Leaves are also used in tea against diabetes and rheumatism. As long as they are protected from cold winds or freezing temperatures, trees have very few problems and produce quantities of delicious fruit each year. Trees can grow over a wide range of soils and are one of the few trees that actually grow well in highly alkaline soils, even at pH up to 7.5.
