WTB:Looking for fresh White Sapote seeds
« on: April 20, 2017, 02:40:30 PM »
Or even small seedlings but they need to be shipped unless I can pick them up in the Palm Springs area.

Looking for about 30 fresh seeds but less is fine if that's all that is available

I think you have to wait at least a month for early white sapotes, and later in summer for the bulk of them.

Yeah, around June for the smaller summer crop for the few varieties that produce it. Most of them are around November.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try a month from now. Is it true that Suebelles can continue to produce fruit for up to 6 months?

I just bought 50 seeds from a nursery in Hawaii, so they are ripening now.

I see fruits sold at my local farmers market for $2/lb. Maybe you can find it locally as well?

Thanks for the advice. I don't see any white sapotes at my farmer's market, probably because I don't live in a metro area or near where they are typically grown. I'll hold off on ordering from Taiwan. I have had bad luck ordering from that region (China,HK,Taiwan)

I have some overripe fruit at the moment. I'll clean it up and see what I have. They are from seedling trees so it would be good for rootstock if that is what you are looking for. I'll pm you when I see what I have and give you first dibs if you are interested since you have been looking for so long.

Hi James,

What is W4. Can you be specific on this. are the seeds from fruits of a tree grown in full tropics. For what W4 stands.
