Excellent fruit which I had not seen or tasted since I left South America 55 years ago. Very sweet indeed. They took quite a while to ripen, but the wait was worth it many times over. Will be trying your Mamey on my next order. Have informed some friends about your farm.

My grandmother lived in Venice, Florida in a beautiful old spanish style home. She had a huge sapadilla tree in her back yard. I remember she called them, "chocolate pears". Thats the flavor discription I find most suitable.
Lives up to its nickname: "the brown sugar fruit"!

Loved this fruit! First off, let me say that the comparisons to pears do not really do it justice in my opinion. The Sapodilla is way less gritty in texture than any pear I've ever eaten. Taste wise, it does have a brown sugar flavor, but I even got root beer and cinnamon flavors in some of the fruits! It is also a very easy fruit to eat, just a few seeds to remove and a high proportion of edible material. Highly recommended!

Sapodillas are absolutely wonderful. The description of it as "like a pear dipped in brown sugar" is somehow accurate! They take quite a while to ripen, but the wait is worth it many times over. They're kind of like a sweeter version of mamey sapote- at least, the basic consistency and shape is similar.
