CANISTEL OR YELLOW SAPOTE

Description

The fruit is round to oval and matures to a yellow-orange colour hence its other common name of 'egg fruit' and yellow sapote. The yellow flesh has a sweet earthy flavour and a meaty texture similar to a boiled egg. The fruit is delicious eaten fresh out of hand with a little salt and lemon juice added. Canistels are often added to sweet custards or made into delicious eggnog-like milk shakes by blending with milk.  The fruits are very rich, the flesh can be dried and ground into a powder which is than used as a flavouring for sweet desserts.
