Then Vince Asks About Mamey.. We Thought He Was Teasing Us!

We had to find out.... He was not teasing us!

The mamey sapote (Pouteria sapota) is a species of tree that is native to southern Mexico. Today, the tree is cultivated not only in Mexico, but also in Central America, the Caribbean, and South Florida for its melon, which is commonly eaten in many Latin American countries. Mamey sapote is a large and highly ornamental evergreen tree that can reach a height of 15 to 45 meters (60 to 140 feet) at maturity. Like most fruit trees, it is mainly propagated by grafting, which ensures that the new plant has the same characteristics as the parent, especially its fruit. It is also considerably faster than growing trees by seed. The melon is about 10 to 25 cm (4 to 10 inches) long and 8 to 12 cm (3 to 5 inches) wide and has orange flesh.

The melon is eaten raw out of hand or made into milkshakes, smoothies, ice cream and fruit bars. The melon's flavor is variously described as a combination of pumpkin, sweet potato, candied yams, maraschino cherries with the texture of an avocado. Some consider the melon to be an aphrodisiac (probably only Vince).

The brown skin has a texture somewhere between sandpaper and the fuzz on a peach. The melon's texture is creamy and sweet. To tell when a mamey sapote is ripe, peel off a fleck of the skin to see if it is pink underneath. The flesh should give slightly, as with a ripe kiwifruit.

And Then I Gets This Email From Vicky

What a fruit!! No wonder they won't allow it into the U.S. as Vince told us.
No wonder why those who eat these things have so many kids, geez somebody tell them.
I bet they don't even know it's an aphrodisiac...and
it cures aches and pains, plus wards off venereal diseases.
All we need is a wagon, horse, fancy bottles and a roll down canvas tarp sign and we could be the traveling medicine gypsies of this century.

I think we should arrange to have a shipload of this fruit sent to China, where they only allow one child per family. Boy, that will throw their numbers off the chart.

I have one question though. Do they eat it, inhale it or smear it on????

Maybe we could package it and sell the stuff.
