Sapodilla (Manilkara Zapota)


A breather from all the 'staged' shots here and a bit of sunshine...

It is funny how I now long for things I never liked when I had them in plenty. 'Sappottakka' is one of them.

We had an old tree back at home, whose spreading branches would be laden with fruits when the season arrives. The fruit was never a favourite of mine, and even if everyone else liked to have a slice now and then, more fruits would go to waste than get eaten. Unless, someone who likes them visits and take a few batches off our hands.
The bounty back home is no longer near and ironically, I love Sapodillas now. We rarely get vacations in time to gorge on the fruits at home; so we buy them here occasionally. Nothing, however beats home grown.

Notes:
  1. This is a shot from our last vacation when the fruits on the tree were still young (which accounts for the small size of the fruit in the photo).
