Say Hello to Sapodilla

It may not sound pretty but don't let the name fool you. The Sapodilla is one handsome tree with a ton of benefits. From its long, glossy green leaves to the attractive oval fruit that hangs like large brown eggs, the Sapodilla is quickly gaining recognition among evergreen enthusiasts. The bell-shaped flowers bloom several times a year, adding a colorful burst of pinks and reds that complement the sea of green throughout the tree.

A strong specimen, the Sapodilla has a white, gummy latex that reinforces the tree's trunk which helps it hold up well against strong winds. It's also salt and drought resistant. With great looks and adaptability, the Sapodilla is an excellent choice for a variety of possible planting locations.

What looks like an egg but Tastes like a Pear? Sapodilla!

Take a ripe pear and dip it into brown sugar. Sound flavorful? That's the best way to describe the taste you can expect when you bite into a Sapodilla fruit. Sweet and almost malty, cut it into wedges and serve it chilled for a fantastic treat. This fruit tastes like dessert all by itself. But don't let that stop you from dressing up ice creams, cakes and fruit cups.

Rich in Tannin and vitamin C, Sapodilla is good for the body as well as the palate. With everything it has to offer, there's a spot in your garden or landscape just waiting for a Sapodilla.

Very excited

I have been wanting to find a chico tree ever since my trip to the Philippines. Very excited I was able to find this tree online and am happy to add this to my backyard grove. Just repotted to a 3 gallon pot and hope to put into a bigger pot later this season.

Very slow growing tree

I had the tree in a 7 gals pot and it's still alive and hasn't growing at all. It seems like a very slow growing.

Neighbors envious

Healthy tree when arrived. 2 months later I still haven't planted into the yard yet. Still have it in the planting pot it shipped with. Going to wait for the tree to get stronger before I give it a new permanent home.

Tree is healthy but arrived damaged

Received the tree with a completely severed branch and another that was damaged and subsequently died. The result was two out of the three branches on the tree died. The remaining branch appears to be healthy.

Plant arrived in good condition

Its been few weeks. Do not see any new growth but think the plant may survive PA weather. Put the plant in a 16 inch pot. The delivery was less than desired. Fedex left the box in invert position.
