Chikoo Kalipatti Grafted


Chikoo Kalipatti, also known as Sapodilla (Manilkara zapota), is a popular tropical fruit tree native to Mexico and Central America, and widely grown in India. The ‘Kalipatti’ variety is particularly renowned for its sweet and flavorful fruit.

The chikoo tree is evergreen and can grow up to 30-40 feet tall. It has glossy, dark green leaves and produces small, bell-shaped flowers. The fruit is round or oval, with a rough, brown skin and sweet, grainy, brownish flesh that has a taste reminiscent of brown sugar and pear.

Chikoo trees prefer warm, tropical climates and well-draining soil. They need regular watering, especially during dry periods, but are relatively low-maintenance once established.

Kalipatti chikoo fruits are enjoyed fresh and can also be used in milkshakes, smoothies, and desserts. The tree is valued not only for its delicious fruit but also for its ornamental foliage, making it a popular choice for home gardens in suitable climates.
