Canistel, also known as Eggfruit, Yellow Sapote or Tiesa, is a unique tropical fruit tree related to Mamey Sapote. The fruit has a really exciting flavor, tasting like maple syrup coated sweet potatoes! The texture is dense and soft while simultaneously smooth, dry, creamy, and flaky.
The Trompo Canistel variety is known for being a heavy producer of large, moist fruit with an amazing flavor. It fruits from September to October and again from February to May. Canistel fruit trees are as beautiful as they are rewarding to grow in the home landscape and are easy to maintain with regular pruning.
