Yellow sapote - Growing well, yet to flower
How did you sprout the sapote seeds? Are yellow sapotes the same as white sapotes? I have started Loquat, Cherimoyas and Papaya from seed by wrapping them in damp paper towels and putting them in a plastic bag "greenhouse" unit they sprouted, but the white sapote seeds kept molding and not germinating. I planted 6 white sapote seeds in planters next to other plants and hope they germinate, but nothing yet and it's been about 3 weeks. I collected some Carob pods and plan on making carob powder, trying to ferment the carob since it's very sweet and also planting the seeds. Moringa is on my list as well, although I'll harvest the leaves and keep them too short to fruit.
I have figs trees that I started from cuttings and am going to try air rooting my friend's passion fruit. Next season, I want to try sprouting guavas, too. I don't have any room to grow trees, but give them away or keep them in planters. My goal is no cost gardening / food forest, although I'll buy seeds. I borrow my friend's yards and community garden plots. If I had my own land, I think I'd be willing to spend some money, but I'm having fun learning how to be resourceful!
