I only have a few spots left in the yard, and would love to plant a Sapodilla. Which one should I choose between these two? I'd like one that is sweeter, have higher yield and less "sandy" in texture.
I live in SoCal & those are the only two varieties I've seen in nurseries around here... I wonder if there is a better variety out there than these two & where to order it.
I think there is a misunderstanding regarding those labels. "Manilkara" is the genus that the sapodilla belongs to and not a type of sapodilla. The scientific name of sapodilla is Manilkara zapota.
I have never heard of "Mamey Sapodilla". Can someone else in CA verify that this is an actual cultivar and not just a mislabled Mamey Sapote?
In regards to your question for a better variety of sapodilla, I would have to agree with JF and recommend the Hasya. Even though I don't really like the taste of sapodilla myself, most people I know like the taste of the Hasya best compared to the other cultivars.
