Mamey is a fruit that originates from Latin America. As such I had never seen it, neither in Europe nor in Asia , before my trip to Mexico. It’s a funny looking fruit with a thick skin that reminded me of wood. Cut into it and you’ll reveal an orange flesh that kind of resembles papaya. When I tried it, it tasted almost exactly like carrot to me. It even had the texture of a cooked carrot. I like my fruits a little sweeter, so I don’t think the mamey is for me.
