Green Sapote 2009
I planted a Green Sapote (Pouteria viridis) in 2005. The tree did blossom during late-2008 (along with a Yellow Sapote tree which is nearby) but no fruit held as the tree was infested with ants. Earlier this year many new blossoms appeared and now several fruit have held. The Sapote-named "family" is quite varied and includes un-related fruit like the Black Sapote (more of a tropical persimmon) and the White Sapote (a citrus relative) plus more related ones such as the Mamey Sapote, Yellow Sapote (eggfruit, canistel) and the Naseberry (Sapodilla).
