Flavour is very sweet like brown-sugar with a slightly gritty texture like a pear, contains several shiny, black seeds. Very hardy, slow growing, subtropical fruit tree. Seedlings take longer to start fruiting and fruit size and quality will be variable. Seedling trees are much hardier and more adaptable to marginal climates. Trees can be forced into flowering by cincturing when large enough.
Other Names: Chico, Chicoo

We have a grafted Tropical, Sawo Manila and Krausey. They are very hardy plants and have been transplanted here, from 700km north (and a much warmer climate) They fruit prolifically - especially the Tropical variety - but the fruit fly love them also. ...

Arrived as a sad litle plant, with few growing tips. Not hardy enough to withstand drought.

The first frost got in before I did - I'll try next time in a more sheltered position.
