WTB: Sapodilla 'Butterscotch' . . . .
« on: October 07, 2020, 03:50:10 AM »
Anyone on here know who maybe has got this cultivar for sale right now?

Would like to find something maybe 2 to 3 years old.

Would hope for a seller in the west central Florida area, but not limited to there.

TIA

ZHHP is propagating them so they should be finding their way to retail nurseries.  Keep checking around.

No luck so far after checking around a bit.  However there was one offering around Oct 15th for an 18-inch air-layer of 'Butterscotch' on eBay with vendor asking $200 for it!  Yikes! Way too rich for my blood. Even so someone apparenty sprang for it as the auction closed marked 'sold' after two days.

Anyway, still looking for a 'Butterscotch' priced so that an Olde Retired Kreaker like me might be able to afford it.
(Not holding breath!)

Cheers!

I sent you a PM, there is a guy in Florida who sells butterscotch sapodilla. Sold out this season but  he will have mire on spring. His price is very reasonable.

Epicatt, did you ever find your Butterscotch Sapodilla?  I am in the South Lakeland, FL area and have just started looking.  If you located anything within reasonable driving distance and not outrageously priced, I would really appreciate you sharing your info.  Thanks

Cheers!

You might have better chances growing out some seeds and looking for scions. While Zill is propagating these, they seem to sell out fast and the retail market tends to favor the highest bidder, so more often than now trees end up leaving Florida.

I started a bunch of seeds last year to be ready to start grafting as my parent trees get bigger, so hopefully more growers will be doing the same and make this variety a bit more available.

I wish you were not over 3 hours away as I would be interested.  Just too long a drive for a tree at my age.  Someone will be sure to score it.
