Comments: - Healthy looking young plant, although no sign of a graft visible, I suspect propagated by some other means. Small amount of scale insect present on purchasing treated with white oil.

Planted: 2009

I left fruit to ripen on the tree, softens slightly and was brilliant when picked at this stage. Organza bags placed over each protected them from pest damage - flawless.

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.

I finally planted my Sawo Manilla in June 2010, I hope it is not too much of a temperature shock going from the poly house to the top of my hill.  It is right up the top of the orchard, not too bad a spot, planted into a big mound as the soil is fairly heavy, will need to keep the lantana hedge at bay.

2014 - slow - in fact it not grown much but always look OK. First flowers this year.

Tasted the fruit and was sold -  really does taste like pear stewed in brown sugar with a hint of cinnamon. Ugly fruit (look like a scruffy potato), but tastes delicious.
