Abiu Tropical Fruit Tree (pouteria caimito)

100 – 1,000 Delicious bright yellow fruits a year from a mature tree. A lovely bright yellow fruit with a whitish, translucent flesh with a jelly-like texture and a sweet, flavor, it has a thin skin and should be eaten shortly after harvesting. The pleasing flavor of the fruit easily lends itself to making sorbet, ice cream or jelly. At maturity the tree can get rather large and pruning it to 12 or 14 feet is recommended for higher fruit production and ease of harvesting. Tropical to its core, it requires a year-round warm, moist climate and lots of sun. No southern edible garden should be without one of these great trees.
