Alex, if you do come up this-a-way, PM me for contact details. I have a LOT of fruits on it some ripening every few days.

Regards,

JF,

So basically anyone who lives in the Valley or IE is screwed beyond recognition? Between my dad and I, we have 4 Alano sapodillas in the ground right now. Every nursery owners we talked to all said that we would have no problem fruiting sapodillas in southern California. I am trying to plant more, but if this is the case, I will look for something else.

By the way, nice looking tree you have there. Thanks.





Alona is my fastest grower. It blooms year round but fruits start to ripen in June or July and it goes on till November. Silas Wood and Makok are both heavy producers


Thanks for the info guys, if Alano blooms year round would that mean it would fruit all year round? Sorry Iím a bit confused   ???

not necessarily Alex. Iím in SoCal so it takes a long time for the fruits to size up and most of the bloom dry up in winter.....it could be posible in Miami. Here in SoCal  it fruits in the mildest areas so if you live in The Valley or inland empire  it may be years or you may never see fruits. Iím looking into introducing several exclusively winter varieties from the YucatŠn we will have to wait and see.

CA Hockey: I have no idea of the rootstock these are nursery bought 3 gallon
