Deep-red-to-salmon-fleshed and tasting of decadently sweet, creamy pumpkin, the mamey stands apart in terms of its cultural importance to the fruit-buying public in Miami, where after many decades of production it still resonates with Cubans and Cuban-Americans young and old. Virtually innumerable preparations of the ripe flesh of the mamey are possible, and all people for whom it sparks memories have an opinion of what is the best way to enjoy it.
The great joy in growing mamey is in its virtual year-round production and in the size of its fruit, which can range in weight from two to five pounds. Fruit is continually ripening, and the trees bloom and set fruit multiple times each year, although it takes roughly a full year for fruit to reach maturity. The mamey were the foundational plantings at Health & Happiness Farms. So many years later they continue to dazzle our customers both locally and across the United States. Order yours today!
