Mamey Sapote is back in season! The variety we are harvesting right now is called Magaña and it is known for its thick cake-like texture.
Make sure to wait until it is wrinkly and soft all over before opening.
Mamey is native to the West Indies and northern South America.
Our mamey sapote is grown in South Florida. Each fruit is lightly scratched to make sure the inside is orange/red before picking. This ensures that the fruit is ready to pick and will ripen properly for you.
A few notes for the Magaña variety:
1) It's naturally a large variety, this may mean you receive less fruits in total but the weight you receive will still match the approximations in the product description.
2) This variety in particular needs to be very soft and wrinkly before eating.
