Product Description & Reviews
The canistel or Egg Fruit, is a member of the Sapotaceae (mamey sapote family). In English speaking parts of the tropics it is also known as Yellow Sapote. This evergreen tree native to Central America is grown by some backyard growers. The canistel tree is erect and generally no more than 20 ft tall. Trees can be maintained at 10 feet with annual pruning. The tree is easy to grow in sandy soil or even in limestone soil conditions. Canistel trees are wind resistant and require minimal care. These trees do well during long dry periods once established. 'Bruce' is a large, uniform and atractive fruit shaped much like a Hersey's chocolate kiss . Fruiting occurs in two major waves during August to October and again from February to March. There are 2 to 3 seeds in each fruit and plenty to eat.
