White Sapote

    3 responses

Mungo47 starts with ...
Hi all , i bought a white sapote about 15 years ago from Daleys and its growing great but has never flowered. I dont know which variety it is as it was so long ago .We're in South Gippsland Victoria so not sure if its the climate or if it needs a pollinator , any help to choose a pollinator or tips to get it to flower would be greatly appreciated , cheers Matt.

Maybe the rootstock overtook the graft

If it has never flowered, a pollinator wont change that. White Sapote is a distant cousin of Citrus, you might be able to try stress, fertilizer, or cincturing, which can work with inducing flowering in Citrus. Is it also possible it is too cool at your location ? Do you get a good burst of spring heat to cause a growth flush ? How do Citrus do at your place ? Maybe a sun trap might help ?
