Mamey Sapote - Pontin

I love these and can't wait for the fruit each year. They grow well in the tropics and survived "Larry" and "Yasi" , so are very tough. The hard part is trying to tell when the fruit are ripe as they don't change colour and don't all ripen together. | Stephen Cole - South Johnstone, QLD 09-Mar-2016
