White Sapote from under graft
Q: My super sweet white sapote died back all the way to the roots but itâ€™s growing back from the roots and I'm wondering if that's just the rootstock growing back or if thatâ€™s good fruiting wood that's going to make a nice healthy super sweet tree?
A: The "super sweet" White Sapote, or Casimiroa edulis, was probably variety Young Hands, Super Sweet White Sapote. It was grafted on seedling of White Sapote that has a pleasant somewhat-sweet flavor. The grafted variety you had is a little sweeter than that. So to answer your question, it is worth to give the tree a second chance as far as fruit quality is concerned, although it won't be the a grafted variety, if the new growth coming from under the graft point. The only problem is, non-grafted tree may take longer until it fruits. Grafted trees may fruit right away, seedlings may take a few years.
We suggest to use SUNSHINE-Sweet to enhance flavor of your White Sapote fruit, and make them sweeter, better tasting!
