Your sapodilla looks very cool. I'm really glad you managed to raise her. My friends told me that it is very difficult to care for such a tree. But to be honest, I don't know since I have never tried it. I usually plant more standard trees in my garden. The main thing for me is not the harvest, but the atmosphere that the garden creates. For me, this is a place where you can come in the evening and think about life (as in the good old fairy tales when the princess ran into the garden). I pay a lot of attention to decorating my garden. I constantly try to decorate the trees and the garden as a whole. For example, various lanterns in the trees, benches under the oldest and largest trees, a small fountain in the center. All these things create real magic (by the way, the fountain was very difficult to find. The only place where I could find it is mayfield-market.com). Guys, good luck with your gardening! I'm sure you will be able to grow even cooler fruits!

Here in So. Flo. my sapodilla is the most trouble free of all in my yard. I wonder if your friends are having regional issues?

I'm like you, I setup my yard/garden as much for the atmosphere/aesthetics as I did for the fruit. From lighting, seating, stepping stones to water features it's all been planned with shade and relaxation in mind.
