Black Sapote

    5 responses

Snow1 starts with ...
Hi All we'll Hooray my Sapote has finally fruited after some 12 - 14 years and a variety of different fertilising regimes and even a harsh cut back, all to no avail!
Then this last advice from Matt Lunn to use Potassium Sulphate and a heavy dose of NPK Blue and Blood and Bone too which has finally given me results (see picture)
Now my problem when do I pick the fruit???

The calyx on top of the fruit will lift away from the fruit when it's ready.

Mine pretty much refuses to grow at all. Really considering chopping it out. I've had litterally no movement at all since its been in the ground, no new leaves or anything.

I used back then a good quality premium but now use Debco premium with extra saturaide put through it - I wish a membrane could be found to stop worms getting in and still let water out as it would last years longer
