White Sapote - Chris

Casimiroa edulis

Flowers of the Chris White sapote fruit tree before they set fruit

This selection is from Nth Qld with excellent flavour and texture. Chris bears so heavily that it may require pruning to minimize limb breakages. The tree itself seems to always look a bit stressed but the bottom line is it's a good producer.

Not really sure which White Sapote I have. Got it from the Woolworths through out section and it was just a stick. Is now growing like crazy.

White Sapote - Chris

Fruited after 9 years (2.5m tall). Deep watering kept the fruit developing over a very dry spring-summer. Older leaves often yellow. Responds somewhat to trace element supplements iron, magnesium, and manganese.

A small plant I originally had sent to Country Victoria, in the ground for three years with no growth during a prolonged drought. Now replanted in deep soil at the base of Mt Warning, looks like some promising new growth already in the damper condition...
