Also called Chico, Sapodilla are very slow growing trees and a real collectors find in Aotearoa.


We suggest growing in pots for a few years, and then planting inside a tunnel house to protect from wind and frost. Strongly suggest not planting outside unless you are in the far north.


Self fertile


Grows slowly to 2-5m in ideal conditions, Prefers well drained soil.



Ripe fruit has a slightly gritty texture, like a pear, and a delicious sweet flavour like brown sugar and cinnamon.



Really needs to be inside, or in a sunny and warm location that is sheltered from the wind and frost.



Protect from frost.


All plants are in a 3.5l recycleable plastic pot, unless shown otherwise.
