sapodilla fruits are globose or elongated ovoid, 4-8cm in diameter and contain 2-10 seeds. When ripe, the skin and flesh of sapodilla are brown, very fragrant, soft, cool and sweet.

However, many people say that the “super-giant” sapodilla in this clip belongs to the red-fleshed sapodilla.

according to the Central seedling institute, red-fleshed sapodilla originated from Thailand and was first grown in some southern provinces of our country. This sapodilla variety is hardy and gives a very high yield. a red sapodilla fruit can be 17-20cm long and very heavy. The smallest fruit is about 400g, the largest fruit can weigh more than 2kg.

When planting red sapodilla, usually after 2-4 years, it will be harvested.

Not only having huge size, beautiful appearance and delicious taste, red sapodilla also contains a lot of nutrients beneficial to health.

according to advertising on some websites, the price of red sapodilla fruit is sometimes 30 times more expensive than regular sapodilla.

The price of red sapodilla seedlings is also very expensive. in 2018, when Thai red-fleshed sapodilla appeared in the Vietnamese market, this variety was sold for 1-1.3 million VND/plant. Currently, this variety is for sale at a price of 200,000 – 400,000 VND / tree depending on the size of the tree, large or small.
