Highlands of central Mexico and Central America. 2

The white sapote is a species with great potential as a dooryard fruit in Florida. Despite its name, it does not belong to the Sapote family, but is a distant citrus relative. The flavor of the custard like pulp ranges from fair to spectacular. A mature tree is capable of very high yields. The white sapote is a rugged species and will grow and fruit as far north as Orlando. 5

The common name for this tree may be confusing, for it is not actually related to the sapotes in the family Sapotaceae. The Aztecs called this tree cochiztzapotl ("sleep-producing sapote"), for they believed that eating the fruit induced sleepiness. 7
