Honeybees on White Sapote (Casimiroa edulis)

I walked under the White Sapote tree and the whole tree was buzzing!  I looked up and it was covered with honeybees gathering nectar and pollen from the millions of small flowers.  The tree is in full bloom now and the first fruits will be ripe around May.  Some years there will be a light harvest throughout the summer.
