The White Sapote (Casimiroa edulis) is a fantastic, rare fruit that most people are unfamiliar with. The apple-sized fruits have a creamy texture like pudding, and are very sweet & delicious, with no acidity.
The White Sapote (pronounced sah-PO-tay) is a distant relative of citrus, although the fruits have no similarity to citrus. The tree originates from Central America and Mexico, where it grows 15 to 40 feet tall. It can be pruned to any height that's convenient, and is easily grown in a pot.
The foliage is very attractive, with a nice tropical look. The trees are very productive, and can begin bearing fruit after 8 years when grown from seed. The fruits usually ripen around autumn, when most other fruit trees are bare. Some plants produce fruit year-round. The fruit can be yellow or green when ripe, with a very thin skin that is edible.White Supote Friut plants in kerala is also available now.
