When do green sapotes flower? I keep reading some people say spring while others say fall. Maybe depending on the variety?
Some fruits on the trees right now, so guess they flowered in fall. But usually heavier fruiting late summer, so guess they also flower in spring. But flowering depends a lot on location, soil, and ferts.

As you can read in ths thread, I received the seeds in Summer 2009. Its a seedling, not grafted. I think its the third year producing. However I have three seedlings fromthe same batch and this is the only one with a good crop. The second one has been flowering like crazy for several years, but this is the first time with fruits. The third one has not flowered yet. The trees are not planted next to each other, so it is difficult to find out why they perform so different: genetics, of maybe  small differences in conditions (soil, humidity, temperature, etc).

Congrats! Was it worth the wait?

Of course amigo! It was an exciting journey. First receiving the seeds from so far away, then germinating, the acclimatation in ground, then first flowers, then fruits... now it's still exciting to evaluate the production in terms of quantity, quality and size in the next years ;)
