Egg Fruit

April 26, 2012

Egg Fruit


Egg fruit, (pouteria camphechiana), is also sometimes called canistel.  This subtropical fruit comes from the forests of northern South America, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
     The tree of the egg fruit is an evergreen tree.  It is a medium sized tree, that grows up to 25 feet in height.  The bark is brown and furrowed.  Inside the bark is an abundant, white, gummy latex.



    The egg fruit is a round or oval shaped fruit that is egg shaped.  It is 3 to 5 inches in length, and 2 to 3 inches wide.   The skin is very thin.  The fruit is green, then turns a yellowish orange color when ripe.  The flesh of the fruit ranges from lemon yellow to orange.  The flesh is firm and mealy, and has many fine fibers  running through it.  It is very sweet.
