The soft custardy fruit has a sweet delicious flavor with tropical hints of banana, vanilla, or peach!
The Redlands White Sapote is a variety originally cultivated in South Florida. White Sapote is actually a distant relative of Citrus, whereas the Black Sapote is related to Persimmon! Where White Sapote tastes just like vanilla pudding, it's totally unrelated counterpart, the Black Sapote, tastes exactly like chocolate pudding.
Grow White Sapote to carry on a beloved tradition in tropical fruit horticulture, or to join the ranks of its small-scale commercial production in the United States. For populations of people indigenous to tropical and subtropical regions of the world, the White Sapote is an obvious choice for post-mealtime decadence. Harvest the fruit before it drops by clipping it from the stem, and allow it to ripen at room temperature until soft. Then you’re ready for a new twist on your milkshakes and desserts.
