Some Butterscotch Sapodilla Flower Pics

Haven’t seen any bees one these flowers just black ants 24/7 night and day, think they might be the main pollinators? Nonetheless impressed with quality of camera on iPhone 7+ still going strong 😂

How big is your tree? Can't tell by the pictures. Hopefully big
enough to hold a couple fruit!
Also do you have any more sapodillas near by?

Oversized 2 yr old viking for reference, no other flowering sapodillas nearby in my yard or neighbors to my knowledge.

Nice tree :)

How long has the tree been in the ground?  I have a tree that I will plant in the next few weeks; trying to find the best spot for it in my yard.

Think late summer of 2019.

Cool man, my 3 gallon “Butterscotch” also has one single flower. Can’t wait to taste it I hope nature decides to give me a fruit from this flower, would be cool in a 3 gallon. Good to know when they like to flower, as I understand it’s a very new cultivar...
