I wanted fresh fruit so, for around a $6 cab ride in a 50’s something American car, I was taken to a local fruit stand. The driver couldn’t have been more laid back. For around $10 I took back to me casa particular a pineapple, garlic, a miniature variety of bananas that tasted so sweet I thought I was eating candy. One papaya, three mamays. Mamey sapote is unlike anything most people have ever tasted. Honest. It is a species of tree native to Cuba and Central America. What someone once said to me about mamey; the flavor is a combination of sweet potato and pumpkin. Perhaps they are right. Best when made into a milkshake.
