I'm looking for one as well!  Hard to find these!  Are they worth the hype?

I checked out that site and my goodness those prices seem high. I havenít bought from them before so I canít judge him/her specifically, but there really seems to be lots of folks jacking the prices up for non-Floridians who donít have easy access to these trees. I bought from Lara Farms recently and I was pleased with his 1 gal selection and prices were reasonable considering how everything is going up. Heís got 8 sapodilla varietiesÖnot Butterscotch, but other excellent ones. Just saying, I feel badly for these folks who pay insane prices for average tropical trees.

Just be careful when you buy anything from guavaking, he is famous for mislabeled his trees.
Numerous people here bought tree that is not the variety he said it was.
Recently my friend bought an Orange Sherbet mango from him that turned out to be an Ugly Betty.
Hope yours is a real butterscotch sapodilla.

Aaron Jones from Rivers of Provisions had some for sale earlier this year. Usually he will restock on spring, maybe you can preorder with him.
Not cheap though, i think a 3 gallon will cost about $120.
