Tasted the fruit at Tropical Fruit World and was hooked. The description of the taste of the fruit (pumpkin or sweet potato) doesn't do it justice - it does taste a bit like cooked filling of sweet pumpkin pie, but richer. Great in smoothies or as flavouring when making ice-cream. Fruit is super-sweet so is not for everyone.

Am growing a handful of seedlings at present to see if they cope with conditions I have before I get a grafted variety. Seed germination is 100% from fresh fruit.

Autumn 2011: bought some fruit from Tropic Fruit World and it tasted awesome so saved the seeds and planted them (1 at home and 2 at work in the glass house). About a month later I have little pink baby just starting to poke himself out of the soil. So exciting. I have been bringing him inside at night to keep him warm - so pampered.

Oh I am so stupid! I thought that he looked weird so I had a little dig about in the pot and he was upside down! When I planted him I thought that there was a big root coming out so put that down... apparently I was wrong. I have added a new pic of him being the right way up!!!

The other 2 seeds that are in the glasshouse are up too! So exciting. They are bigger than the one at home now but I think that it's best to keep them separated in case something happens at one site!

Spring 2011: the sapotes are home now. I have 1 from the glasshouse and my friend has the other. I made sure that they were kept in the dappled shade for a month before moving into more sun. They are taking a little while to adjust to life on the outside but they are happy and hopefully just waiting for summer.

Summer 2011: The tiny leaf curling caterpillars love the new growth and you have to be SO carful not to snap it off when you're trying to get rid of it. Bring on the dry weather so that I can spray the anti-caterillar bacteria!

Planted: 2011

Height 30 Centimetres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 2

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: No

Pest Control:

A green caterpillar did make a silk cocoon underneath one leaf (didn't eat anything though).

Ants started farming something small and green on the underside of the leaves.

Hello, how is your Mamey Sapote *Tree now ? No longer a seedling I am guessing.
