Jonah,

   Do these sapote root from cutting? The reason i asked is one of your reply seem to indicate that it does root.

Hi Vincent, I have never heard of anyone successfully rooting White Sapote cuttings.

We have roots! Suebell can be rooted, treated it like citrus cuttings.  Not sure of other varieties but its a start

Serious plant wizardry!
You have a misting chamber set up?

Jonah, yes you can root some white sapote.
I have a few that rooted and have plenty of leaves now so i will be putting it in a separate pot.
Will try to take a few photos of the rooted cutting when I pot it.

No misting system just inside a humidity dome with bottom heat. I use sphagnum moss for rooting and an anti fungal rooting hormone

I just grow it outside in a pot, in shade under my loquat trees. No special care required.
Also no issue with grafting of  C. Tetrameria and C. Edulis, any combination of these.
I have a few seedling trees of the C. Tetrameria but no fruits yet.

The varieties that do well in St. maarten may be different from the ones that do good here for me.
I would try a handful of different ones as they flower and fruit quick , and then select your favorites and ones that do best. Not all my varieties are fruiting but they are all bigger tree’s now and are all flowering this spring so I am hoping to have tried fruit from all the varieties I have by the end of the season.

Any updates on these rooted cuttings? Are they doing alright? I have 5 seedlings that are ready for grafting but I have an opportunity to get scions of more varieties than that, so rooting the ones that won't end up being grafted would be a great way to have more than 5 varieties.
