Sapoticaba - Amazing cauliflorous sapotaceae (ID)
« on: June 27, 2016, 02:38:49 PM »
Hi everybody,

I've found another tree of the unidentified cauliflorous sapotaceae, and this tree is far more stunning that the first one ( http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=20385.0 )
I'm not sure if it is the same specie because the shape of the tree is different, the trunk is shorter and fruits have more pulp and taste is not the same. It could be a different variety too.
Despite of my search, it is still unidentified.
I have to say that it is one of the most spectacular fruiting trees i've found in the forest.
Fully loaded of orange fruits covering trunk and main branches, it reminds me a Jaboticaba tree, so i've called it Sapoticaba.
Monkeys seems to be crazy about eating the fruits. Taste is very nice, refreshing after walking several hours in the deep forest, but still lacking of pulp.
I'll be glad if one of the experts members could ID the sapoticaba.
Here some pics.

Cool! No clue what it is but I agree with your description and visible similarities to a jabo although the fruit is different. I hope you saved a few dozen or more seeds :)
