Sapodilla flower

That is the flower of the Sapodilla fruit. Locally it is called chico, a brown fleshy fruit that has a distinct texture when eaten and tastes "like brown sugar and rootbeer".

I know that sounds weird, and not many really like this fruit. A family member doesn't like it, but I do. :)

I've never heard of this before. It would be interesting to taste it. Happy GTS

This is a new one for me too. From your description, I'm not sure I'd like the taste, but then, I eat cactus fruits, so it's always worth a try! I certainly chew enough gum, so I'm glad this plant exists. I'm going to read about the fruits on the link you supplied. It's a whole new world out there!

Never heard of that before. Sounds like a good mix though. Will have to see if I can find any.

well my husband liked the fruit very much the last time we visited the Philippines. He said, it tastes way better than kiwi - he compares it to kiwi because they almost look the same to him - brown!

What an interesting looking flower. I have never heard of this fruit. Will it grow in the UK?
