Origin: White Sapote (Casimiroa Edulis) is in the Rutaceae family and is native to Eastern Mexico and Central America.
Flavor Profile: The texture is creamy and custard-like. The flavor can have hints of peach, pear, lemon, banana, caramel, melon, mint, and vanilla.
How To Eat: This fruit may need time to ripen after delivery. It should be stored at room temperature of 70 degrees or above to ripen. Once ripe White Sapote will be soft all over. It's typically eaten raw, scooped out from the rind with a spoon, and tastes great in drinks as well.
Fun Fact: Unlike the mamey sapote, white sapote is a member of the family Rutaceae, which is the family that citrus belongs in. Black sapote is also unrelated and is actually a species of persimmon. This confusion may be because the word "sapote" comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec) word tzapotl, which is used to describe all soft, sweet fruit.
