I bought a nice, large Mamey on Friday and this morning it was completely ripe. I've been wanting to try this tropical fruit for a long time. The flesh is the brightest orange, with a texture not unlike cooked sweet potato. Good flavor but cloyingly sweet; a squeeze of lime helped. It's a large fruit and I knew I wouldn't eat the whole thing as it was, but added to my breakfast smoothie with a banana, yogurt and some O.J., it was perfect! The color is gorgeous, too.
