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

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.

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

Hey Nisperolover,
What fruit is a níspero 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...
Thanks,
Ryan
