Mamey Sapote ๐Ÿงก

 The Mamey Sapote is a very popular fruit in Florida, the Caribbean islands, and Central America. The fruit was cultivated by the native peoples of Central America for hundred of years. It is this fruit that kept Cortes and his army alive on their famous march from Mexico City to Honduras.

The fruit is large, up to 25cm long with orange-pink flesh tasting somewhat like a flavorful pumpkin. The interesting fruit is usually eaten fresh out of hand, but can also be enjoyed in desserts and drinks. Even though it is of tropical origin, the Mamey will grow and bear very well in the subtropics as long as it is protected from frosts when young #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #mameysapote
