Botanical Name: Casimiroa edulis

Pike is often seen in commercial plantings. The large fruits remain green when ripe and have a bitter skin, however the flavour is superior to most other introduced varieties.

White Sapote - Pike (Grafted) 9/10

Comments: -

This tree fruited after having it in the ground for only a year.  The first couple of fruits it produced had quite a bitter aftertaste, and I was ready to pull it out, but the ones I have harvested this year were beautiful.  I find you have to catch them when they are just turning soft, as shortly afterwards they will ripen too quickly..........and drop from the tree, causing them to go splat!!!!!!!!

Haven't quite worked out what it tastes like yet, as there are a number of flavours combined.

This is a lovely looking tree with quite a weeping habit.

Comments: - Fruit sounds nice but did not realise this needs a x pollinator. Will keep my eye out for a self pollinating I think. We don't really have space for two. Lesson:do your homework (also buy from daleys as they always give you this type of info before you purchase) you live and you learn hey?

Planted: 2012
