Whether you know it as a Mesple or Sopodilla, these fruits are some of our favorites!
In the USVI, we commonly call it a Mesple, however the standard name is Sapodilla. It is the size of a kiwi, brown and fuzzy, but it is a firmer fruit. The flesh is yellowish-orange and a little gritty, similar to a pear. Once ripe, the fruit is soft to the touch and ready to eat. The delicious flesh tastes like malty caramel dipped in brown sugar. It contains smooth black seeds that you do not eat.
Approx 3-5 fruits per pound
