Excalibur, 561-969-6988, should have: avocado, black sapote, canistel, sapodilla (varieties depend on ripeness), papaya, passion fruit, carambola (Bell and Hart, possibly others).

You are most welcome to stop by my house.......more than happy to share what I have to taste.  Usually have fruit available for sale if you are so inclined.The tasting comes with the yard tour and the yard tour is expensively priced as free!  There is no obligation to buy fruit. But if you wish to,  I currently have balck sapote, canistel, carambola (multiple varieties),avocado and sapodilla should be in full swing by then.  Be aware that some of the commercial nurseries treat their trees with systemic fungicides and insecticides. You should always ask about what they use  before you decide whether you wish to eat their fruit......in any quantity anyway.

Thanks, adiel.  I've never been to Robert's stand, and had no idea there was a web site.
