Mamey fruit cut open to show seed

Mamey is a unique and decadent fruit that hails from Mexico. Technically, it is a berry, but is quite large. The fruit is oblong, ranging from 4 to 10 inches in length and about half as wide. The skin is brown and textured somewhere between sandpaper and peach fuzz. Its flesh is soft and colored pink, orange or red. The flavor has notes of sweet potato, pumpkin, honey, peach, apricot, cantaloupe, cherry, and almond. Mamey is quite unlike any other fruit you’ve tried before!
