Sapodilla (Manilkara zapota) 人心果/人參果
These exotic fruit are from tropical climate. Best growing in warm climate in full sun to partial shade location. Light green/white flowers all year around. When fruit is ripe to eat/pick, you can press the fruit gently and feel the fruit is soften. The flesh is soft, sweet and juice similar like ripe pear but I don’t find it has strong flavor. Still delicious! Growing the tree from seed to flower and fruit will take 6-8 years. Mature size:40’+(H)/(W).
它是較少見的熱帶水果. 喜溫暖的氣候區在全日照到半日照的環境生長. 淡綠到白的花朵全年都能盛開. 果實成熟需時很久才會變軟. 手指輕壓是軟的就能採收來吃了. 果肉軟,味甜多汁,吃起來接近熟梨的口感但我覺得果肉沒什麼香味. 不過也算是好吃! 由種子種到開花結果要6-8年. 成熟株高40呎,寬幅也是40呎.
The tree white sap is called chicle, it is the main ingredient of chewing gum.
