Yellow Cassimiroa / White Sapote (Cassimiroa edulis) 

This variety of (yellow flesh) white sapote is made in Northland, new exciting variety for a rare plant collector. It produces very tasty, medium to large size, sweet lemony flavoured, smooth fruit. Delicious, creamy and close to a mango flavour. 

Wonderful fruit the size of an apple with a thin green skin. It’s a dwarf cassimiroa with a small tree growth habit. Heavy cropper, tastes super delicious. Need another variety nearby for pollination.

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.
