Caimitos are widely distributed throughout Central America and the Caribbean. The trees also grow well here in South Florida and were introduced in the 1900’s. They do not like cold snaps and young trees are easily killed at temperatures in the low 30’s. Always plant your tree in full sun for best growth and fruit production.
We recommend you grow your tree in a container until it reaches a height of about 8 feet before planting. This makes it easier to protect the tree while it matures.
