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: simultaneously smooth, dry, creamy, and flaky. Canistel fruit trees are easy to maintain with regular pruning.

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.

Our Canistel fruit trees are grafted.
