Ok, it is another day of try to grow a strange tropical fruit. We are adding on to the list, which I believe the last we grew the mangosteen and before that we looked at how to grow custard apples. Today, after doing some research online let us tackle how to grow sapodilla from seeds.

This is a tropical fruit that is often referred to as the Sapote. It is native Central America, Southern Mexico as well as the Caribbean. However, South East Asia countries have taken to growing it in larger quantities. The fruit actually looks like an enlarged Kiwi fruit and tastes like a pear with brown sugar. You can find them in some Asian grocery stores. The tree itself does not do well outside in colder climates.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Cut your fruits open and extract the seeds, be careful as the seeds have sharp edges. Remove the outer shell of the seed using a pair of scissors. Fill up your container will potting mix, then add enough water to just get the mix moist.

Plant one or two seeds flat into the potting mix and then cover them with some mix. Now just cover the top of the container with a lid and that will help save you some time, as you will not have to remember to water it as often. Place your container on a window sill that gets a lot of sunlight, and germination should take about 6 to 7 days. The tree will take 5 to 8 years before it starts to bear fruit.
