    Can someone tell me how long it is before my Black Sapote (Chocolate Pudding Fruit) will bear fruit. And where can I get some "Tansy" from?
    Thanks

    Hi there PDB,

    I can't help you out with the black sapote but, I would certainly recommend wwww.daleysfruit.com.au/forum (if members here can’t of course).

    Tansy – Are you after plants or seed?

    You can get seeds from both https://www.edenseeds.com.au and https://www.diggers.com.au

    Regardeners,

    Jodi

    Black Sapote - Chocolate Pudding Fruit

    Our Black Sapote took about 3 years to start fruiting...I think they usually from from November to April depending on where you are (we are at Valla Beach near Bellingen). However, some varieties fruit throughout the year. Hope this helps :0)

    this is my new favourite fruit

    the ice-creams at tropical fruit world are almost better than sex

    handy hint ~ they are ready to pick from the tree when the little flower calyx thingy that connects the fruit to the tree raises or curls back !

    this is my little newphew eating his first organic black sapoté straight from the earth

    Hi Duckpond
    "These trees prefer well-draind, moist soil, with ample water in growing season and being brittle, need shelter from strong winds. retated to the persimmon." Mine took awile to start but is doing well now and in my Botanica says you are the same Zone as me. I was given it by a old work mate who lived not to far away and used to get alot of fruit of his. hop this helps.
