Mature Grafted Fruit Tree

Delicious rare White Sapote variety from South Florida. The soft custardy fruit has a sweet flavor with hints of banana, vanilla, or peach!

Before the world of ice cream monarchies and broken custard machines, the White Sapote (Casimiroa edulis) reigned supreme in the world of desserts. For populations of people indigenous to Latin America, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, India, Southeast Asia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Australia, Casimiroa edulis is an obvious choice for post-mealtime sweets. White Sapote ‘Redlands’ is a variety originally cultivated in South Florida. These trees do best in subtropical climates with distinct cool and dry periods, but grow and produce prolifically in a number of climates. 

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. These trees can grow up to 60 ft tall in native habitats, but are likely to remain smaller and controlled otherwise. It will produce small white flowers in the late fall to early summer, fruiting in abundance into the following spring. Harvest the fruit before it drops by clipping it from the stem, and allow it to ripen at room temperature until you’re ready for a new twist on your milkshakes and desserts. This variety has soft custardy fruit, with a sweetness that hints at banana, vanilla, and peach flavors.
