Problems with white sapotes pics included - I finally tasted my first white sapote (Chris) about two weeks ago - but to be honest, I was very disappointed as the fruit was really bitter.

Seville orange - I was told that it could take up to 7 years to bear fruit Ė but if you graft it onto a more vigorous rootstock (rough lemon?), it should bear much sooner than that! http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/forum/seville-orange-fruiting/?PHPSESSID=e0b8069b70db8e40..1471 days 23hrs

My avocado hass is dying - I disagree with this. That's the conventional home brewed wisdom, but the reality isn't like that.
