Jason Cassimiroa / White Sapote (Cassimiroa edulis)
Developed locally in Northland, Jason variety (white flesh) produces very tasty, medium size, lemony flavoured, smooth fruit. Delicious, without being too sweet.
Wonderful fruit the size of an apple with a thin green skin. The pulp is delicious, creamy and smooth, the flavour is sweet and rich. Generally fruit is mature if it comes easily from the tree with a gentle twist, changes to a lighter colour and is slightly soft to touch. Handle gently as they bruise easily. Store in a cool spot and eat within a few days of ripening. A prolific producer.
This variety is only available in a small number and not available in any big nursery or plant shops
