Ross Sapote is a selection of canistel-like fruit introduced to Florida by Mr. William F. Whitman. It has an orange-yellow thin skin, flesh is moist, resembling a hard boiled egg yolk. Eaten fresh, it is used in cooking, pies, and ice cream. In a milk shake tastes like eggnog. It has excellent flavor and is similar in taste to the Lucuma from Andean countries. Even those who are not fond of canistel, immediately like Ross Sapote.
