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...

I have some great plans for the fruit and the tree will hopefully give us some well positioned shade when it is bigger

It is about 15 feet tall and has over 1000 fruit on it. They have an excellent taste and are large ones.
