Discover Sapodilla or Manilkara zapota, a slender, slow-growing, pyramidal evergreen tree native to southern Mexico to Costa Rica. It is a winter hardy tree, suitable for USDA Zones 10-11 and displays good drought tolerance when established. Suitable for full sun to part shade, Sapodilla doesn't tolerate frost but thrives in moist, fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soils. The tree is noted for its sweet edible fruits, which are similar to candied pear, as well as chicle used to make chewing gum, and has durable wood perfect for tool handles, timbers, and railroad ties. Green, glossy leaves appear in spiral clusters with small, bell-like, pinkish-white flowers blooming through the year. Ripe fruits, tan-brown in color and with sweet edible pulp, typically appear from May to September. Sapodilla is a shade tree with a dense, pyramidal crown, resistant to wind, and well adaptable to various soil types, but considered invasive in South Florida.
