I just finished Susan Orlean's magnificent novel "The Orchid Thief," which has been adapted into a movie called, aptly enough, "Adaptation," from the folks behind "Being John Malkovich."
In it she describes a rare Cuban fruit called a Mamey colorado with flesh the color of brick. It sells for $12 apiece, and many farmers no longer grow it because people steal the fruits.
She also describes an exotic fruit from the Yucatan called Bullock's heart, which is olive-drab on the outside and about the size of a baseball.
Has anybody ever heard of either of these fruits? Where can one find them in NYC?
