Hey Rob, just wondering if I could grab some white sapote cuttings off you? I'd be more than happy to trade or pay for them! dwain at live dot com dot au Cheers

Hi Harry, I unfortunately killed one of the plants and the other is on "life support". How that happened is a long story. I recently purchased a kampong but that has literaly been in the ground a few weeks. Once the trees are bigger you are most welcome to have cuttings but at this stage I have nothing to offer. Sorry!
