Sapodilla Fruit Tree

This is exactly how the sapodilla sap is being harvested from the tree. They make a cut on the bark in diagonal, so the sap would go down the tree to be collected in a container.

After, the sap is boiled until it thickens to be able to be rolled and cut into pieces. Those pieces are ready-made chewing gums with a natural long-lasting flavor. (Ah, I wish those times were back...)
