hi all. i'm an avid reader of this forum. I find this forum really informative and interesting indeed. By the way i'm going to post some pictures of my sapodilla tree
Here is the first picture of my sapodilla tree. I'm not sure what variety it is but my guess it could be a 'Jantung' cultivar which is a malaysian variety. The tree is about 7 feet tall and more than three years old
So far it gave me about a dozen fruits.When mature the fruit is about 5 cm long.
Here are some of the immature fruits on the tree. Normally it takes about 7 months for it to mature from the period the flower is fertilzed. There about 40 or more fruits on this tree of various size.
Here's a close up view of my tree.
I usually fertilize the tree once every two weeks with liquid fertilizer. So far i haven't encountered any problem with the tree except from aphid and mealy bug infestation but that is usually taken care of with a spray of pesticide when needed
Nice tree. You live in the tropical climate so it is easy to grow this type of tree.
Oh my God!!!i'm dieying to see my trees growing like yours!!!congratulations,I love your sapodilla tree!!!!
What fruit is a nÃÂspero exactly? Is it a sapodilla (Manilkara zapota)? My Nicaraguan relatives say it looks more like a kiwi but this website indicates that it is a sapodilla...
