Seed Saving: White Sapote

On our way home from our trip to Temecula, we have to stop by the fruit stalls and I found this unfamiliar fruit called sapote.
This one got too ripe - it was mushy. It has a pear-like taste. By the way, you don't eat the skin of this fruit.
A fruit has five of these seeds. This one has been dried under the sun for a couple of days.
It isn't hard to remove the fibrous shell with garden shears. These are ready to be sown.
