onalee Brooksville, FL (Zone 9a) Does anyone know the variety of this sapote? It has orange flesh and takes like cooked, sweet, butternut squash. It has one seed and the fruit is about the size of a baseball, although more oblong.

trackinsand mid central, FL (Zone 9a) it's possible that pictures of the leaves and entire plant would help.
onalee Brooksville, FL (Zone 9a) It's a sapote - I don't have the plant, just the fruit. I already looked at the sapote on this site, but didn't see any with that color flesh.

DreamOfSpring Charleston, SC (Zone 8b) color and size of fruit can be influenced by things such as age (of the fruit) and environmental factors.
chedderpink Anacortes, WA Plant the seed and wait. ;))) barb
onalee Brooksville, FL (Zone 9a) Don't want to plant the seed until I know if the fruit and seeds are valuable and viable in my area. Don't have enough room or time to waste on things that I can't sell or won't mature in my zone, unfortunately. :)
onalee Brooksville, FL (Zone 9a) After finally getting home and off dial-up I was able to research more easily. I believe I found that it is a Mamey Sapote. Thanks for the help!
