Sapodilla is a new to me fruit that I am on a quest to find out if I want to try to add to my property here in Florida.

It is a tropical fruit tree that according to the University of Florida website will survive a brief dip to 28 F once it is full grown. Based on this information I suspect that it will be very happy here.

BUT I have never tasted the fruit. Before I grow one I would like to know that I like them.

According to the Wikipedia article about them they are popular in India and in Latin America and places like that, so I have searched in the ethnic markets around here for them. But I haven't found any yet.

Does anyone have any advice for me as to how to get to taste a sapodilla fruit?
