The Magana Mamey Sapote tree is a large evergreen tropical fruit tree.  Mamey Sapote produces a fruit that is both sweet and almond-like in flavor and beloved in the Caribbean. 

Mamey Sapotes has a thick central trunk and a full open canopy lush with long leaves.  Small white flowers form abundantly in clusters towards the end of the stems.  Sapote fruit is slightly avocado shaped and vary in size from 3 to 8 inches long and 1 to 6 pounds.  Mature Mamey sapote trees will fruit prolifically when mature, producing 200 to 500 fruits in a season.

On the outside, Mamey Sapote fruit is brown and fuzzy.  The inside is golden red-orange with one big beautiful shiny black seed. As for taste, the smooth and slightly granular pulp has a very unique rich flavor.  Fruit can be frozen and made into milkshakes or ice cream. 

Mamey Sapote is related to another Sow Exotic favorite, Canistel.
