    Sapodilla Fruit: The Star of the Show
    The real appeal of this Yucatan native is its delectable fruits. Many liken it to the taste of a pear dipped in brown sugar. The recipes for this wonderful fruit are endless, from dressing up fruit salads and smoothies to adding an extra zip to ice creams and flans. They also store well in fridges for up to a week as well as a month in the freezer. Best of all, the sapodillas are chock full of nutrition. The antioxidant rich fruit contains Vitamins A and C, and potassium. Think of it as the ultimate guilt free dessert!
     
    Picking Time
    Get your recipes ready because a mature Sapodilla tree can yield up to 8 bushels annually! You know it’s time to pick when the skin is brown, and the fruit separates from the stem easily. Keep it at room temperature for a few days until the fruit is firm-soft. Invite friends and neighbors over if you’re not feeling too greedy.
     
    Easy Does It
    Alot of fruit trees take hours of meticulous labor, but not the Sapodilla tree. The tree holds well against strong winds and drought. It can handle almost any kind of soil as long as it’s well-drained. Feed your Sapodilla twice a year with a 8-4-8 fertilizer. You can save your pruning arms for other projects since the Sapodilla tree needs no cutting. Best of all, pests and disease look elsewhere. Northern residents, don’t despair. The Sapodilla is an excellent container plant. They are a great addition to a patio garden, and they can be moved inside in the winter to add flair to your houseplant collection.
