I have read that C. tetrameria does not make a good rootstock for C. edulis. If I remember correctly it negatively effects fruiting. C. edulis works for C. tetrameria.

Palolo grower,  I only know White Sapote as good compatible rootstock.  I don't know if you could graft it on Wooly Sapote or anything else.

Vlan1, No can do on shipping the 5 Gallons. I could send some seeds soon and then scion , they're easy to grow and graft.

Is that Smathers or a different one? Are there other named C. tetrameria besides 'Smathers'? I have heard that Suebelle is an edulis/tetrameria cross.

White Sapote scion is good to go again.

"Smathers" is the only named C. Tetrameria I have come across. I had 1 successful graft last year onto C. Edulis rootstock and its very cool to see it growing side by side with a C. Edulis branch. I should probably cut the C. Edulis branch off and have 1 singular focused C. Tetrameria graft.
I had not heard that about Suebelle before.

Felipe, I have not tried more than 1/2 the varieties on the list so hard to give a top 3. I like all the White Sapote's I've eaten in CA. I say grow as many varieties as possible as they are easy to graft and a delicious fruit.

With regard to grafting C. edulis on C. tetrameria or visa versa, there is no incompatibility.  I have 15 year old C. tetrameria grafted on C. edulis and the tree produces prolifically normal sized fruit.  The tree is about half the size of C. tetrameria on its own roots.  C. tetrameria is not a huge tree like C. edulis (about size of a peach tree).

However, grafting C. edulis on C. tetrameria (white sapote on yellow or wooly leaved sapote) leads to extreme dwarfing.  I have Pike and Vernon grafted on C. tetrameria rootstock and 15 year old trees are no bigger than 3 ft tall .  One is still in 5 gallon pot, other in the ground.  Both are same size.  Production is limited by size of tree, but normal sized fruit.  Each produces 3-5 fruits.

Crfg years ago did a taste test of the yellow sapote (wooly leaved sapote, C. tetrameria) and labeled two as worth propagation.  These were identified as #6 and #7.  Taste is different than C. edulis, color is yellowish inside, seeds are much smaller.  Indeed the underside of the leaves are very fuzzy (wooly), C. edulis is smooth, except Suebelle has a slight fuzz as possible indication of mixed heritage.

Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge Jack! I was hoping you'd chime in on this .
I'm excited to grow C. Tetrameria now that I have it succesfully grafted on C. Edulis
It's neat to see both types of leaves growing from the same rootstock .
