Can Silas Wood or Alano sapodilla have fruits in Orange or Los Angeles County (zone: 10a)? Productive? Does any one know?
How low temperature can they survive? Thanks.

    • Pictures of my trees.. nothing fancy
here you go.. check out the last few posts.. pictures with fruits too.. I'm in Los Angeles County too but my Alano isn't that big compared to theirs.. It had a few flushes even just this year (since I planted it back a few months ago).. slow to moderate grower I would assume.. just like any other tree..fertilizer and water of course  ;D

My Alano is growing well no fruit yet from the earlier flowering. It's going to flower again soon. I try to pollinate mine.

silas woods is crazy precocious--will fruit itself to death if you allow it.  My tree is young, and I have to remove fruit from it every few weeks.  Awesome tree to grow though.

I have a young morena (3 ft )fruiting now in south OC. And my silas is flowering like mad. Both are young plants in pots. They seem perfectly happy in 9b.

My Alano, planted last March, has 3 marble size fruits. It had hundreds of flowers. I don't know how old it is, I bought it as a 10 gal.

Thanks. I might try with the Silas Wood first. Their fruits are small but numerous, then Alano is next.
I grew the Tikal  in the past. It had a lot of flowers every years for four years but no fruits set. I axed it. >:( :(

I heard the Morena and Haysa have big fruits, but also the big tree comparing to Silas Wood or Alano. Is it correct?
