Potted Haysa Sapodilla Update

My potted haysa sapodilla fruits are getting larger and some are huge compared to the makok sapodilla. I repotted the tree into a larger pot and more flowers blooming. There are a total of 12 fruits on the tree. The largest one is already 1 1/2 size of an xl egg. I'm not sure when the fruit is ready to pick. Maybe I'll wait until August to pick the few largest fruits. :) Check out the discussion tropical fruit forum here.

Wow beautiful tree. The fruit are ready to pick when they fall off the tree with a slight shake. If you remove a fruit from the tree and latex leaks it was picked too early and my not ripen.

Did you pollinate the flowers? If so how? Mine flowers but will not set fruit.

I did not have to hand pollinate the flowers. I saw bees and other insect around the tree. If you want to hand pollinate, use a small size brush to brush the pollen off of freshly opened flowers and brush on to other flowers. It might be hard to hand pollinate since the flowers are so small. Is your sapodilla a grafted tree?
