Mine doesn't seem to be a vigorous grower in a pot. This is year two of a plant I purchased in 7 gal. I have upsized once from a seven to a 15 gal for my ego's sake ;D ;D :D

Ours is slow growing compared to other saps, which are slow growing in general from my experience. In ground over a year now from a 5 or 7 gallon. 5 or 6 feet tall, with little fruitlets.

My Butterscotch appears to grow moderately but steadily in my greenhouse. I purchased mine from Florida in early spring as a small 18" 3 gallon and placed it in a larger #5 pot. It is now just under 36" tall.

Mine grows slow. Full sun. In ground. I donít water it much. Certainly droopy habit Iíd call it the coconut cream of Sapodilla trees (in canopy shape but not vigor) itís droopy.

Is there any indication of when it's Main and minor crops are in Florida? Spring fall or winter summer

Mine sat for 8 month in ground before flushing. I got a small alano at the same time and it flushed about 4 times before the butterscotch. The butterscotch did put out about a foot of growth this summer and gave it a nice staking for the storm.

I think they mean hype about the taste.  I want to know too, and like bovine said, what is the season?  Could this be a cross pollinator for Haysa?

Have heard from different people I trust that the taste is excellent and distinct from other saps available in the US.
