Origin: Does this fruit taste like your childhood? Mamoncillo originates from South America, but grows here in South Florida in very limited quantities. This fruit is also very popular in Central America and the Caribbean. Indigenous people of the Caribbean and South America (Tainos and Mayans to name a few) called them “Kenep” which is why many countries have names that sound similar or rhyme with it. Almost every country has a different name for them. Some common names are: Guinep, Limoncillo, Kenep, Quenepa, Chenette, Mamon, Huaya and more!
Flavor Profile: The flavor is tangy and sweet- similar to limeade. The look of it is similar to a longan or lychee but the texture is softer. It’s like a lime flavored lychee with a hint of peach.
How To Eat: They’re freshly picked every week when in season (July-September) and shipped to your doorstep. Mamoncillo will arrive ready to eat immediately upon delivery. consume right away or refrigerate to preserve shelf life.
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds
- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
