Sapodilla Tree - (Manilkara zapota)

I got this fruit tree in a small stem cutting root bound plant for about RM10.00. It took me few years for it to fruit. It is more famously known by locals as "ciku".

I have removed this tree and placed in various location for better sunlight and growth. Finally I decided to place it inside my porch area. I had eaten this fruit and its very juicy and sweet.

Need to watch out for ants farming the mealy bugs. They infest the bud tips and fruits.
The saps from the leaves are gummy, care is required when pruning.
