Hello All,

I have a seedling growing for a couple of months now & I am unsure what it is, could you please help identify ?

It maybe Black Sapote.. it sort of looks like one, but I am not sure.

It survived the whole winter outside & showed no sign of frost damage.

Thank you

I would say at a rough guess it is a Sapodilla.

Wow you're good, you know what I totally forgot I actually had a store brought Sapodilla a few months ago I totally forgot that I planted a seed out!

Wow well done! is there a fireworks button here somewhere ?

I am 10x more excited now hoping it is Sapodilla (Manilkara zapota), it is waaay more enjoyable & sweeter than Black Sapote.

I will confirm your guess in 2023 if we're still around ;)

Thanks for your reply.

Alright you are spot on, just looked up some seedling photos looks exactly like mine with the browning colour on the lower stem.

Also the brown lower stem of my seedling just shed its skin, similar to a Jabuticaba/guava but slightly different, it looks natural. Hopefully it was suppose to do that & not an affect of being over watered.
