Information about Fruits: Sapodilla

About sapodillas, information about the fruit, production, history and varieties in the world.


Sapodilla trees grow wild in the forests of southern Mexico and northern Central America and they are cultivated in Florida and the West Indies. The fruit is small, round, and brown with a very sweet, yellow pulp. It has "the sweet perfumes of honey, jasmine, and lily-of-the-valley," writes Michel Etienne Descourtilz, a French botanist. The sap from the tree furnishes chicle, from which chewing gum is made.
