My niece's first tasting of the White Sapote was positive!...she's visiting from the Philippines and the ambrosia of White Sapote means we fight over them now..well,almost-lol.
Also,with two months of steady rain the tree is dropping large fruit almost daily now. This tree's bearing season is unreal,its so long. Like a fantasy tree.

I put in a White Sapote about a year ago now. It's growing quite well Looking forward to when it starts to drop fruit.

Good luck TB. They are when young,heavy feeders. And like a occasional deep watering. Eventually, they can get by on little....just add more for sweeter fruit.

Thanks stanofh, I haven't been fertilising mine very much, will have to start doing that. Wet season it gets more than enough water but dry season I do give it occasional deep watering, especially when it shows a bit of wilt.
