Canistel 'Bruce' (Pouteria campechiana)

Regular price $94.95
Shipping calculated at checkout.

Canistel (aka Eggfruit, Yellow Sapote or Tiesa) fruit has an amazing flavor, tasting like maple syrup coated sweet potatoes! The texture is dense and soft: simultaneously smooth, dry, creamy, and flaky. Canistel is a large tropical fruit tree that can even be dwarfed with the right amount of commitment and will grow well in a container as long as you provide enough space for root growth.
