The flesh is salmon-pink, orange or red and the texture varies from smooth, firm to finely granulate. It has a sweet unique taste . Usually there is a long, glossy brown elliptic seed.

Uses in the Kitchen

Green sapote  can be eaten fresh and it is typically a base for milk shakes. It is also used in soups, preserves and deserts.

What do we ship?

The size of the plant we offer is: a small Grafted tree, grafted on Pouteria sapota seedlings. It will start flowering soon and will set fruits in 2-4 years. Grafting trees is an art and it is very difficult to graft Pouteria as it takes many months and many failures to achieve the goal.
