Default Zapote Faisán (Sideroxylon stevensonii)

Order Ebenales, Sapotaceae Family. The Faisán is a large tree of the Mopan river region of Belize. It is used primarily for lumber. Latex from this tree is used regionally as a substitute for gum. The chewy fruits are eaten by animals but unpleasant to humans as the pulp syrup binds the lips together and tongue to the roof of the mouth. It is listed by many international agencies as an endangered species.

Photos of the plant are proving to be elusive.
