White sapote quotkampongquot - Hi Phil et al Just did the much an anticipated ws kampong taste test. It's divine, creamy with a buttery texture and flavour and not overly sweet. It taste like sapodilla and custard apple but creamier with a hint of vanilla minus the strong sweetne..Liked Answer 1481 days 6hrs

Fast grower, the only problem I've had is with scale.

Hi mate - if you have spare scion woods, can you pls let me know so I can try grafting to my white sapote seedling tree? I am happy to pay for them and perhaps go for a drive down to the South Coast one weekend to collect
Chad1 says... [670 days 21hrs ago]
Sorry I just saw your comment. If you still need some let me know and forget about paying
Stephen9 says... [512 days 1hrs ago]
Hi Chad1, sorry I don't use this Daley forum website often and just came across your response. Thanks mate for the offer, but it is not urgent and I will try to source some other varieties white sapote scions to graft onto my seedling tree project sometime in the near future. Same, we are based in the same state NSW and so if you are after a particular scion(s) I may have spare, let me know and I can try to assist

Seems to be a wooly-leaf sapote. The underside of the leaves are furry, unlike my Kampong.

Growing in a small greenhouse in full shade. After applying half a handful of Scott's Pure Organic Fruit & Citrus fertiliser it's been growing great.

Hi Chad1, your tree looks fantastic. May I know where you got your tree from and how old it is?
Chad1 says... [1898 days 7hrs ago]
I ordered it form Daley's and received it in Feb 2017. I'm not sure how old it was then. Probably should update the photo

Been in full sun now for a year.

Chad1 says... [1834 days 10hrs ago]
Sorry about the slow update.
Chad1 says... [1834 days 10hrs ago]
About 68cm tall. I wish I'd measured it when I received it.
Chad1 says... [1834 days 10hrs ago]
Probably should have shaded it in Summer
