Star apple root system

    2 responses

Penelope starts with ...
Does anyone know if the star apple is deep rooted or shallow rooted? I am wanting to plant one in the same hole as a shallow rooted macadamia or avocado as I’m maximising space in my back yard. Any guidance on their root system greatly appreciated. Or if anyone has used the technique of planting a couple or more trees in the same hole with star apples.

I do have three star apple trees in my garden. I believe they are deep rooted because I never seen them inclined after planting and survives strong winds

I have one in a 200 liter versailles-container...i just rootpruned it and it had loads of circling roots at the bottom...the roots also like to grow through the polystyrene insulation i have at the edges and grow very long.
The roots even were lifting the stone sidepanels of my container so in ground i think they will go anywhere no matter what's there.

My ex avocado had very long roots, far away from the tree and they didn't go deep.

I stopped watering the starapple cause i want to see fruit finally.
