When the Mamey was first introduced from Cuba people use to actually beat each other up just to get this fruit in their hand.

It 's a true story. The Mamey has a taste and flavor of a fruit unlike anything on the planet Earth. Sought after by the Cuban population of Miami this tropical beauty has a texture on the inside that is a cross of creamy and sweet. On the outside the texture is between sandpaper and the fuzziness of a peach. Can be eaten when soft. When cut in half what is revealed is a vibrant salmon colored flesh.
The taste would be a mix of sweet potato with pumpkin and top it off with Maraschino Cherry with an Almond twist. The Cubans have been making shakes, smoothies and ice creams from this for as long as we can tell here in Miami. The fruit is a good source of vitamin A and has a good shot of potassium in it. Don't forget if your ever passing by to the Florida Keys, please stop by the farm we have some beautiful specimens of these trees.
Due to the unusually hot summer, shipping highly perishable fruit is more tricky than usual Some fruit is arriving over-ripe. If you have an issue with your order, please call me. I pack every box myself, and want you to be happy with your fruit!
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!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the Keys. You are invited to visit our farm for free as a tropical fruit of the month customer. We grow for you!!
