Yep, it sounds like you have a mamey. The guy in the produce market here persuaded us to buy some a few weeks ago. Very sweet and pungent. He said the best way to use the fruit pulp was in a milkshake. So we did. Yummy.

Saludos, Karen

If that is chico, then it is nicer if it is ripen. It has to be ripen before you eat it. Most people from the Philippines will make that into wine.
