Sapodilla is best enjoyed fresh out of hand by spooning out the flesh. Your box will be shipped unripe and may begin to ripen during transit. These fruit have a short ripening window and will emit a sweet fragrance when ripe. To tell if they are ready to eat, look to see if they are brown and soft to the touch when you apply gentle pressure with your thumb. They will be as soft as a ripe avocado. Sapodilla should be consumed quickly after ripening as they tend to lose their flavor after refrigeration. The skin may get darker as it ripens and will become patchy in color. This is a normal part of the ripening process. They will perish quickly and should be consumed immediately after ripening. Sapodilla will taste like a combination of malty-caramel, pear, brown sugar, and cinnamon. You can also enjoy their unique flavor in smoothies, salads, jams, or dessert. 


Serendib Farms is a small, 10-acre farm located in Redlands, Florida run by husband and wife team, Wimal & Elita Suaris. From Sri Lanka and the Philippines, the Suaris' have a passion for tropical living and cultivating the most unique produce. They've spent the last 35 years in southern Florida focused on growing the rarest varieties of Avocados, Longan, Passion Fruit and many more crops, embracing their short, limited-run harvest windows. They are committed to sustainable farming practices and serving up healthy and delicious produce to their community.

Wimal is a small-scale farmer, passionate about the rare food he grows. He painstakingly cares for these harder-to-grow, delicate crops. His hard work means more flavorful fruit as well as options that we wouldn’t usually be able to find at a typical grocery store. You wouldn’t expect the Sapodilla to pack so much sweetness and delight from its outside appearance. Once ripe you’re in for such a treat. Sapodilla is richly sweet with malty, caramel notes. Simply spoon out the grainy flesh and indulge in its unique flavor and permeating fragrance. 


Wimal has 200 boxes for FruitStand that will start shipping next week as he harvests. He’s offering one box of 3-5 Sapodilla (roughly 2 lbs) and a larger box of 6-10 Sapodilla (roughly 4lbs).

Lovely Fruit

Took me a day or two to be certain what ripe looks and feels like. Nice flavor, and full of important nutrients. Also good in smoothies.

Tropical bliss

My order of Sapodilla arrived perfectly fresh and ready to eat. The fruit was ripe, juicy and I enjoyed eating them. I had never had this fruit before and the texture of soft pear flavored with cinnamon & brown sugar, and ? was delicious. I look forward to ordering other special fruits.
