WHITE SAPOTE - CHRIS

Botanical Name: Casimiroa edulis
Description

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.

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. | Lindsay Sutherland - Nunawading, VIC 07-May-2013
