The Mamey Apple, unlike the Mamey sapote, is not in the Sapote family and has its very own distinction in the tropical fruit world. Wandering over from the Bahamas and the Dominican Republic, this fruit bears of very unique flavor that reminiscent to an apricot with a yellow-orange flesh eaten when slightly soft.
The flesh has a nice sweet smell and varies in texture from crispy to slightly juicy.

Nice served in salads and can made into a jam. In El Salvador they make the national carbonated drink out of it.
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
