White Sapote Tree Shipped in Soil, Five Gallon Container
The White Sapote has good tasting fruit, yellow flesh that is creamy and rich with a sweet flavor. The tree is attractive, so consider not only in the family orchard but planted in a large container up close to the house. If your winters are cold or your summers extreme, you would then have the flexibility to roll the container
under a covered porch or patio cover while the tree is young and getting itself established. Once the tree has a few years under its 'belt' in a container, it will then be able to endure a rogue frost or an unanticipated heat wave better than if planted straight away. The Sapote does get some size to it over time, but can be clipped to fit your garden space. Self fertile, hardy to the mid 20's once established. Shipped potted in soil for best results.
