Under its thin green- and golden-toned rind, you will find ivory-coloured flesh which is firm and juicy.

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?:
Sapito is grown mainly in the Iberian Peninsula, more specifically in the regions of Murcia and Castilla la Mancha. These areas are ideal for farming due to the typically Mediterranean climate: 15 hours of sunshine per day, hot and dry summers under the care of more specialised farmers – the ideal conditions to produce a fruit of first-class quality.
