Macs Golden Cassimiroa / White Sapote (Cassimiroa edulis)
This variety (white flesh) produces very tasty, medium to large size, lemony flavoured, smooth fruit. Delicious, sweet and highly addictive! Taste close to a beautiful mango!
Wonderful fruit the size of a large apple with a thin green skin. It’s a tall growing cassimiroa and has a very vigorous growth habit. It crops later than other varieties. Produce 2 crops per year or a very long fruiting season on July to October, and December to April.
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, highly sought after variety by the exotics plant growers in Nz and overseas.
