Abstract

The Sapotaceae family includes trees or shrubs with milky sap; the fruits are mainly berries; seeds are generally dark brown; shiny, with a wide hilum, wide cotyledons, large embryos, and generally very little endosperm; their pulp is edible, and used in many ways (Muñoz 1960). Several species belonging to the genus Pouteria have become important as a valuable food source in tropical and subtropical areas.
