Varieties: Redland. Season: Late Spring/SummerDark green, leathery, 10" waxy leaves. Inconspicuous 1-1/2" white and yellow flowers. Trees may have all male flowers, but the Redland variety has a perfect flower (male and female). Large brown, round to oval, scurfy fruit (similar to Mamey or Sapodilla in external skin texture). Sweet to slightly sub-acid, crispy flesh. Fruit softens when ripe. Eaten as fresh fruit, in drinks, compotes and jams. Flower to fruit in 11-13 months. Seed to fruit in 4 - 10 years. Grafted trees may fruit in 3 to 4 years. The Mamey is tropical and does not fare well in cold temperatures, surviving only a couple of degrees below freezing without major damage. Mamey's should be protected from prolonged cool or cold temperatures. Its soil requirements are few, and trees often grow in a variety of soil types and depths.
