Don't know about air layering or cutting as a propagation method for Sapodilla. But last June I grafted one Silas wood scion unto a 1 foot seedling (seed from store bought fruit)  and it's now planted in the ground:

I know grafting is good way to go but I don't have root stock. BTW, couple years ago I did try to air layering the Alano and I successed but when I separate it from the Mother plant and It grew very well for while and I don't know why it died.  Sapodilla is very slow rooting.

By the way, "Makok" is another common variety of Sapodilla...

I don't have an answer for you and am curious what forum members would say to answer your question.  I just envy you for wanting to trim your sapodilla.  Here I am, I cannot get my Makok to grow enough in Southern California, let alone have the luxury to think about trimming my tree.

It also grow super slow here in SF area. It will be hurt if I throw away a year of growing so that's why I am asking if I can propagate it into a new plant.

Why I want to trim my plant? because I want to keep it low so I can protect it in the winter much easier.

makok is no sapodilla. is spondias.
I have a sapodilla that is called a makok. It is a small productive tree that has the sweetest fruit
I have ever eaten,

Most trees I see for sale are grafted or seedlings, I notice that top tropicals is selling airlayered trees
so it must be possible. If you are going to prune it anyway why not try?

I often wonder how the commercial cherimoya orchards get fruits to harvest.  I.e., do they have to rely a lot on hand pollination to ensure fruit setting?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cutting or Air layering on Sapodilla advice

Which technique is better and more affective for propagating Sapodilla by Cutting or Air Layering?
I have one central leading branch on the plant and I want to trim it down so instead of wasting it, I would like to know if I can make it into another plant. Please help.  Thanks

As observed in the wild there's some trees, or better say a few that set a lot of fruit, lots, sorry but I don't have an idea how many pounds or kilos would that be, taking a wild guess 250 pound maybe? Those are mature trees, then there's another who set moderate amounts of fruit and then for the most part the ones who doesn't, why don't? I don't know, Omar Pez member of TFF came this February with the Botanical director of Yale University and another botanic from UNAM, We took them to collect flowers for a DNA test, Omar is doing his thesis about this Garcinia, he said he'll have some news for this summer, but haven't received any feedback yet, that's is why is good to have a few grafted trees to ensure production,
