Hi Michael, Black Sapotes are a bit droopy in nature and yours actually looks alright. It has good colour. Don't overwater it as it could lead to root rot problems, they are actually quite tolerant of dryness . Have you tried seaweed foliar sprays and soil treatment.

Hi Pauline you know what I did after the my initial post I retransplanted the tree to another pot in the garden and at the same time I wanted to inspect the roots thinking the tree was affected by root rot or I might have teased the roots too much the first time and shocked it so I read somewhere that hydrogen peroxide is good against root rot, so I applied a hydrogen peroxide spray and later a water mixture of some worm tea and thrive liquid fertiliser and it’s has less droopiness I think it’s doing little better. But next timeI shall apply the seasol products to the leaves and soil. Thanks

Black Sapote can take alot of standing water around their roots VS Avocado that won't ~ my grafted plants are very droopy but grow fine ~ a seedling i have grows very vertical and Upright in comparison.

Looks fine to me. Hopefully you've tasted them before choosing the tree.
