Casimiroa edulis "nettie"

A grafted white sapote. From far out fruit "Nettie White Sapote is naturally a compact yet upright and very prolific flower’er and fruiter. Highly recommended for backyard and small lots.t has no sign of fuzz on the top or bottom of the leaves. Its shape is generally elongated with a pointy tip." The flavor is a tropical pudding/pie filling combination of peach, pear, lemon, banana, caramel and vanilla. WOW!

White sapote is a heavy producer of delicious sweet fruits that taste similar to a custard or pie filling crossed with a soft pear. Cold and frost hardy. This tree is a distant citrus relative and is an amazing addition to any food forest to add some tropical flavors. Can grow anywhere from 15-60 ft depending on the variety. This is a seedling and will fruit in 7 to 8 years or can be potted up and will be ready as a rootstock to graft onto in 1-3 months. Self pollinating but 2 or more nearby trees increases fruit production as it pollinated mostly by insects.
