Rutaceae Week: UD6 CASIMORA EDULIS from California: Submitting pictures of Casimora edulis.
Bark, Buds, Green fruits
Buds in winter, fruits in summer ... in California
my pics are from a physician's garden, same tree... several years apart
This tree grows in mounsides of Central America called White Sapote when ripe, I think its flesh is yellow...
( not to be confused with Chikoo the regularly seen Sapote // sabeda fruits in India)
Do not know if it was ever brought in to India???
