Welcome to Sunrise Garden Center, your premier online destination for exceptional plants in the UAE. We're excited to showcase the Manilkara Zapota, commonly known as Chicko Tree, a sweet and versatile tropical fruit tree that's as delightful in your garden as it is on your plate.

Originating from Central America, Manilkara Zapota has a rich history dating back to the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Revered for its deliciously sweet fruit and sturdy wood, this tree has traveled across continents and now graces landscapes with its beauty and bounty.

Plant care tips for Chicko Tree:


Plant your Chicko tree in a location that receives full sunlight for optimal fruit production. These trees thrive in warm, tropical climates.

Well-Draining Soil:

Ensure your Manilkara Zapota is planted in well-draining soil to prevent waterlogged roots. Sandy loam or loamy soil with added organic matter is ideal.


Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season. However, avoid overwatering to prevent root rot. Adjust watering frequency based on the climate and season.


Light pruning can help shape the tree and promote air circulation. Remove any dead or diseased branches to maintain its health and vigor.
