A close relative of the Mamey Sapote is a native to the highlands of Ecuador. The tree has smaller, darker green leaves than the mamey and has a superior flavour and finer texture. The dark dull green fruit turns to gold when ripe and the thick orange flesh has a 'melting in your mouth' effect. The seeds are edible when roasted and have been used as an adulterant to Chocolate.

Customer Comments on Green Sapote
Mamey enjoys more heat than the Green Sapote, I have 2 among the Mamey and both of them looks sad while the Mameys took off like weeds | Kl - Cairns , QLD 10-Mar-2017
