 Mamey Sapote/ Pouteria Sapota is an ancient pre-hispanic fruit found throughout the tropical regions of Mexico, central and south America. 

Mamey sapote is a round, oval, oblong shape, sometimes with tapered, pointed ends, and its sized medium to large fruit. The skin is thick, semi-rough, and light to dark brown with a textured, scruffy, and sandpaper feel. Underneath the skin, the flesh ranges in color from orange, and red, to salmon and is soft, creamy, and dense with a fine, smooth consistency and faint squash-like scent. Within the center of the flesh, there are also 1 to 4 elliptical seeds with a glossy, black-brown hue. Mamey sapote is only edible when fully ripe and gives slight pressure when squeezed.
