non-gritty Sapodilla fruit varieties?

I love sapodilla. I ate some Alano sapodilla 6 years ago while on vacation. I remember the fruit being very sweet but a little gritty. I am wondering if there are any varieties which have absolutely no grit at all (like some of the pears that are advertised as "Buttery"). I am going to get an Alano tree anyway, but would also like to order another sapodilla tree which has non-gritty fruit. Thanks for your help.

Of all the ones I have tasted.....Hasya is the best and smoothest......IMHO.

My hasya is growing nicely too. It's growing a lot faster than my makok. Maybe the hasya is a more vigorous tree? I definitely like the alano. Sapodilla is sweet.

The Silas Woods fruit is smooth as silk. It taste like a pear with brown sugar on it. The tree is dwarf in size and a heavy producer.

The link below shows the tree where the scion wood for my tree came from. It is located at the real treehouse nursery. Top buys the grafted trees from treehouse and jacks up the price. I paid $30 for mine at the treehouse.

To view the picture change the zero to letter o in the link.
