In a quiet corner of the farm grows a tall and resplendent Canistel tree or better known as the Egg Yolk fruit tree

Canistel fruit is a fruit commonly grown in the tropics. However, it is not commercially marketed as the fruit is not grown on a large scale. The flesh of a ripe fruit is soft and sweet quite similar to that of a sweet potato but a little astringent. The fruit is most flavourful and velvety in texture when harvested fully ripen.
