Hi, My beautiful 2 and half meter tall Black sapote tree of two years, probably a cutting from Daleys is showered with flowers that drops. I suspect lack of cross pollination. I am confused that most people who have planted mentioned it is self pollinating and bearing fruits happily. However, Daleys says it needs cross pollination. WHAT AM I MISSING HERE PLS?

Comments: - Needed a second black sapote to aid in pollination. The specimen from Daley's looked rather weak and spindly and is extremely slow growing in part shade. However, first fruit (just one) in 2013 was delicious, so this variety definitely passes the taste test..Have now bought a second plant from Daley's as I am convinced it's needed for cross pollination for the large seedling tree. But the grafted trees are growing extremely slowly. One of the grafted tree suddenly dropped its leaves and died. Somewhat puzzling, but, growing close to the large seedling black sapote, it might not have been able to compete for water.

Comments: - May 2015: When this plant arrived I was a little concerned that it mightn't last the distance.  It was healthy enough and purchased from Daley's but developed a strange growth on the underside of the leaves pretty quickly.  I kept it composted, fertilised and watered and it has come back very strongly.  It has producted an abundance of new growth and is quite a nice looking plant.  I removed all buds to promote strong plant growth.

Comments: - Never tasted this fruit, but I like the idea of it.  Planted in full sun (summer) full shade (winter).  Will keep it pruned to 3 m height, at the moment it is about 40 cm.  Had flowers on it when I got it but thought I'd be good and remove.
