Hi, I’m the Chicozapote Tree:
The ancient Mesoamerican peoples boiled its sap, the “chicle”: they shaped it, cut it into pieces, and then chewed on it. The first known chewing gum. The Maya used its valuable and durable timber to build their temples.
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.
Manilkara zapota L.
Am I already your favorite tree?
