Description: The Ross Sapote is a selection of Canistel like fruit. It is unclear if it is simply a variety or a distinct species. Like the Canistel, the plant is evergreen, open and well adapted to sub-tropical climates. The fruit grows more in clusters and is smaller and rounder than the larger selections of Canistel. It has a thin orange-yellow skin with a moist flesh that resembles the yolk of a hard-boiled egg. They are commonly eaten fresh out of hand and in ice cream. Even those who are not fond of Canistel, immediately like Ross Sapote.
