Question & Answer

I would like to grow this particular fruit tree in Sydney. In Winter it can be quite cold and frosty, will this effect it's survival, growth rate? From: CANLEY VALE NSW

Sapodillas are tropical and require a frost free climate to thrive and grow well. Frost will damage or kill sapodilla trees. If you wish to attempt growing one you will need to work out a way of protecting it from all frosts. They are slow growing trees, especially when grow out of their native tropical range.

Comments: -

it was flowering when we bought, and it flowers all year round for the past 5 years, but never set fruit. it doesn't need much care, the tree was splited into half just above the grafted point by a intruding cat 2 years ago. I thought it would died, but it survive well, and it has now recover. much more flowers this year.

August 2012: I put it into the ground Sept last year. After so many years of waiting, it finally sets fruits in March. fruits are still small, but I am so excited about it. It seems require regular fertilize, and needs full sun to generate pollen

January 2014: This small tree sets so many fruits that almost break the branches. Fruits are very large.

Comments: - May 2015: This was planted next to a BKD110 for cross pollination in late 2014. It is watered weekly, has been fertilised regularly and compost added a couple times.  It is a slow growing and leggy plant but it appears to be solid and developing well.  The BKD110 appears, at this stage, to be a more impressive plant.  Still, quite happy with this purchase from Daley's and looking forward to fruit!

Comments: - I like sapodillas. I have two planted in the same spot for better pollination - prolific and Sawo Manila. Quick growin and flowering within a few months of going in the ground. Prolific is a leggy grower, Sawo Manila is much more compact.
