Position: White Sapote trees thrive in tropical and subtropical climates with mild winters and well-drained soil.
They require full sun for optimal growth and fruit production.
Watering: The trees are somewhat drought-tolerant once established but benefit from regular watering.
Fertilising: White Sapote trees benefit from regular fertilisation during their growing season, which is typically in the spring and early summer. You can also apply a smaller amount of fertilizer in late summer or early fall. Our berry fertiliser is a great slow-release for all fruit trees.
Pruning: Prune to maintain shape and promote healthy growth.
Mulching: Applying a layer of mulch around the tree’s base can help conserve moisture and maintain soil temperature. Organic mulch, like wood chips or straw, can release nutrients slowly as it breaks down, providing additional nourishment.
Harvesting: White Sapotes are usually harvested with a slight give when gently squeezed, indicating ripeness.
They should be picked carefully to avoid bruising.
