Here in the desert I haven't seen a grafted sapote get to a towering size (15 feet tops, maybe?) but I understand that you can airlayer the branches as you go, or bend them towards the ground to retrain the growth. Like in this video:

Jay B in AZ - he is a little different but gets great results in my state

Randy's Tropicals - he has a seedling Lychee that produced fruit after 10 years I think?

Daley's Fruit channel, wonderful greenhouse

Greenie's Garden, also in AZ growing fruit at home

Same city as you - I have a seedling tree in a pot, too young to fruit. At least they are pretty trees, right?

I've read a lot about this fruit, and my consensus is that the fruit is not chocolate like but is probably at least "mild and pleasant" - possibly even bordering on bland. It will be a fun experiment and "sweet but bland" with a fruit someday would still be fun. Or graft over with a known variety.

If you are short on space you can bring the tree over to my yard and tell your family it went "upstate to live on a farm, to run and play with another black sapote tree." Only half a lie ;)
