Rutaceae (rue or citrus family) Casimiroa

Casimiroa edulis white sapote

Mexico to Central America

This small tree in the citrus family is rare in the area. Campus’s sole specimen is on the northern corner of the central courtyard at Hanna House and has been known to fruit heavily. In Palo Alto see the ‘Suebelle’ cultivar at the northern corner of the grounds at the Museum of American Heritage (351 Homer Avenue) and a small tree on the right at 2230 Hanover Street.
