Short description

The taste of its fruit, sweet and delicious, is reminiscent of a mix of almond and pear. Widely appreciated and consumed by Central American peoples and by rainforest mammals. Our Chicozapote plants in Guatemala offer economic support and food support to farming families, as well as help rebuild useful habitats for other plant species and many animals.

Am I already your favorite tree?

Where will it be planted?

In our agroforestry plants in Guatemala we use native species of Chicozapote tree that are highly adapted to the environment, resistant to pests and super productive. The plants are grown in coordination with other herbaceous species and tree plants, contributing to the regeneration of biodiversity. The communities to which we donate the chicozapote trees are trained on sustainable plant management and on the design of mixed agroforestry systems in which the variety of species ensures the stability and resilience of plantations. As a matter of fact, a stable agroforestry system requires fewer inputs, regenerates soil and biodiversity, and constantly produces diversified yields.

Why food security?

The farming communities transform the fruit produced by chicozapote trees into sorbets, jams and ice creams. The latex extracted from the tree is instead used to make chewing gum.
