What is sapodilla?

The sapodilla is treasured in many tropical and subtropical climates, where it is consumed fresh, despite its lack of commercial importance in any part of the world. Some Mayan ruins still have elaborately carved sapodilla wood lintels that are over 1,000 years old. The sapodilla tree is a medium-sized, slow-growing planted species. The reddish wood is tough and long-lasting.
