Mammee Apple (Mammea americana)

The mammee apple, a relative of the mangosteen, is an attractive fruit tree from tropical America with thick, glossy, green leaves.
The round, brown skinned fruit has a yellow-orange, firm textured flesh with an apricot-mango flavor.
Fruits can be eaten fresh, stewed, or made into preserves.
The fruits are preceded by attractive, white, fragrant flowers.
Waimanalo is a selection with large, good quality fruits.
Trees need some wind protection, but are adaptable to various soils and climates in Hawaii.
