Green Sapote (Pouteria viridis) is a species in the True Sapote family of plants. The fruits have a thin but sturdy green skin -- much like Fuerte Avocado and the flesh of the fruit is red-brown. The taste of the fresh fruit is similar to cooked yams. Although its native range is limited to central America, the Green Sapote is cultivated in many locations with USDA hardiness zone 10b or greater. It's care is much like Guatemalan strains of Avocado as they grow side-by-side in native forests.
Two years ago I acquired 3 saplings (shown below) from Roger Meyer. I grew them on in 15 gallon pots and trained them into a branching form. One I gave to a fellow member of the CRFG, the second I've offered to a member here, and the third I'm getting ready to plant :slightly_smiling:.
