Sapodilla, is also known as Manilkara zapota is believed to have originated in the southern parts of Mexico. Currently sapodilla is locally sourced from our organic farm in Homestead FL. Some of the varieties we source are makok, alano and morena relative to the season. The main differences between them are the shapes and flesh texture. Sapodilla skin is brown to grey with a smooth, sandy texture. The juicy flesh of the fruit is always sweet and similar to brown sugar. There are a few black seeds hidden within the pulp that are inedible.
This box contains fresh whole Certified Organic sapodilla fruit from our farm.
