The Sapodilla is called Chikoo in North India and Sapota in South India. It is a brown fruit with light brown flesh which is very sweet. My Sapodilla tree is only three feet high as it is only three years old. It has given me the first fruits which I am going to ripen .
The Sapodilla tree is a medium sized tree with glossy green leaves. It bears fruit throughout the year in these parts. The flowers are small and insignificant.
The Chikoo fruit is said to be a preventive of cancer.
