I have a very small tree and it will be some years before it fruits, if I can keep it alive. Nice pic of the fruit, I've heard that it's supposed to be a good one.

Tim, thanks for posting your adventure to Leo Manuel's, I've heard tails from folk's who have gone there. I've been to Eunice's before a couple times amazing Lady nice that she was able to go! I heard that Leo has a black sapote grafted onto a persimmon tree! Did you happen to see it! Very interesting get to gather lot's of CRFG knowledge in that group.

Adam, when is the best time to graft Eugenia's, I have a tasty seedling and a dud,so need to graft over dud,

fyliu, yeah Harvey was one of the guys that went on that trip also Jack Swords who also posts on this forum along with John V. from San Francisco area and Bob H. from San Diego who helped put the trip together. What made the trip special was that Bob Chambers was able to meet us there and decipher his grove maps for us a little. Talk about mapping and tagging trees was a bit of a nightmare! ::)

It's to bad what's happening to Steve S. Exotica nursery he has been around in CRFG almost since the beginning and has helped a lot of rare fruiterers by introducing them to many tropical exotics. To bad business end didn't match the growing side, but I have witnessed many a CRFG Fruit Festival where he was supposed to be there and never showed up or showed up so late that folks didn't have a chance to buy his plants, but I must say hes like that battery bunny he just keeps going!  :(

Wow Cyclonenat, you are pushing the envelope of growing down there in Invercargil. Past through there on vacation many years back very nice little town. I would sure protect that white sapote come winter time and needs wind shelter for sure. I've got thirty plus varieties on maybe 12 or so trees and I'm on the Central Coast of Calif. 2-3 miles inland from ocean with cool summer growing conditions. My trees grow well but not like they do inland more where there  is heat. So fruit production is not great but we do get some but wish it was more. Endeed up with some many varieties because I went with some other rare fruiters a few years ago down to De luce area in nothern San Deigo area to old CRFG member Bob Chambers White Sapote groves where he has 40 + varieties growing, our quest was to help save alot of these varieties because Bob is getting up in age and future of groves is uncertain. So we all collected as many as possible in one day and shared wood with many calif. rare fruit growers in hopes of keeping these varieties alive. So, any way take good care of that white sapote and best of luck growing 8)
