Revision for “White Sapote” created on




Nancy Falls · February 4, 2022 at 5:41 pm

My Suebelle sapote is six years old and quite tall. Every year it has many small blossoms, but I have not gotten any fruit.
I fertilize regularly and wait until it is quite dry to water. Is there something I could do to encourage fruiting as I love the taste?

There is a white sapote tree that had a trunk 36inchs across before it was cut down in 2017,but it continued to grow. One side is bearing fruit the size of a softball.
Please can you tell me if the fruit ripens off the tree?
Can the tree be propagated from large branches?
Everything evolves into it’s opposite.. for the sake of balance, here in the physical world. It’s sad to witness the negative. And happy to see a the positive.
It is on a piece of land that was part of a old garden built by dwellers of a house on a hump with a slope created of boulders piled back onto a natural vein of rock when highway 78 was built around ? 1965. The garden had pipes and water features, a concrete culvert stream leading to little waterfalls and very thirsty plants.
Imagine what those days of much water was like.
The property was split between San Diego county and City of Vista in 1987 putting the tree and garden on city side where it continued to be watered as an easement between Hwy 78 and Pepperwood apts.
The garden grew and grew into a, well, a shaggy homeless shelter.
The bottle brush bushes and flowering vines covered huge boulders and got thicker and thicker….until it festured with criminals and in2017 Pepperwood apartments hired a clown car to cut everything down. That included this white sopota tree with a trunk 3feet across.
Thank you for your attention.
