Sapodilla Tips

  • Sapodillas are ripe when you scratch the skin and it appears brown - this technique avoids the grainy/gritty texture and won’t harm the fruit. It’s nice blended with crushed ice as a juice.  Ref:  Research Station, Vietnam
  • Very slow growing and needs a lot of nitrogenous fertiliser and they will bear heavily  when they get old – it’s is one of the highest sugar content fruits and belongs to the  family Sapotecea.  Ref:  Bob Brinsmead - Tropical Fruit World
