**MAMEY IS CURRENTLY OUT OF SEASON, BUT AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER***
Fun Fact: Despite its large size, Mamey sapote is botanically considered a berry.
Mamey, also known as Pouteria sapota is native to the Caribbean Island of Cuba as well as South America and Mexico. Our mamey is sourced from a certified organic farm and our own farm. There are three main varieties that we harvest year round: Pace, Magana and Key West.Mamey is a football shaped fruit with rough brown skin. The flesh is salmon pink to bright red in color and is soft and smooth in texture. The taste is sweet and unique, like a cross between Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Papaya.
Mamey Sapote is very beneficial for the human body. It includes vitamins B, C and E, as well as manganese, potassium and dietary fiber. The high concentration of potassium can effectively lower blood pressure. Mamey is available year round. Refer to our SEASONAL GUIDE

It is a very sweet and delicious fruit! One that I look forward to enjoying for a long time. Give it a try you won’t regret it
The Mamey arrived in perfect condition. When nice and wrinkly, it tasted wonderful of caramelized sweet potato! Thank you! Perfect amount.
Unlike any fruit I’ve eaten!
The texture and sweetness were incomparable. Think of a baked yam, but sweeter!
The richness I can handle in small portions only!
My first mamey fruit. It was so good. Thank you for the informative video. I would have never tried it. It really is like a cross between a sweet potato and an apricot. ❤

My mom LOVED it thank you so much. Such an honor supporting your mission.
The mamey is very sweet and bigger than I thought
It was very delicious! I will definitely be purchasing this and other fruits again in the future.
This is my 3rd purchase with Frootz n Rootz! I’ve been following Chaka on social media for years. Huge fan of the plant based movement. Fruit is fresh and lasts in the freezer for months… still got some Mamey left over. Thanks everyone !
