Sapodilla Fruit Tree (manilkara zapota)

Manilkara is a fairly fast-growing, long-lived tree, upright and elegant, distinctly pyramidal when young and capable of reaching 40 feet when full grown. It is strong and wind- resistant with highly ornamental, glossy evergreen leaves. Small bell like flowers, bloom on slender stalks from the leaf base. Fruit varies in shape but is generally orb like with a smooth skin when ripe. Juicy, pear-like flavor is found in the interior with the yellowish brown to reddish brown flesh. The fruits mature 4 to 6 months after flowering and should be eaten when the pulp is soft-firm.
