Fire the lawn guy

Chintalala is a mutation of a mamey sapote (I forget which cultivar). The fruits are small, about the size of a small canistel, but packed with flavor. The tree produces twice a year, in spring and fall. As with other mutations (eg, the variegated guavaa), some branches revert back to the non-mutated version.

The fruit is only known in El Salvador as far as I know, and even in El Salvador it's not widely known. It was one of the best tasting mameys that I've had. I brought back budwood and grafted to a green sapote rootstock that I happened to have laying around. All grafts took and are doing quite well :-). In a few years I should have some chintalala fruits :-). I'm curious to see if it performs the same here in FL.

Jeff I know this is old but did your Chintalala ever fruit? and if so was/is it the same?

Itís Seacrest. They decided to change the name.

The names are getting worse and worse. Seacrest was an excellent name.

What we can agree on here is that the fruit grown in one area's conditions will taste different than one grown in another, and will also be variable across people's random palates.

Not counting that not every fruit from the same tree will taste the same, especially at different stages of ripening.

If you really want to know a fruit, taste multiple samples on multiple trees grown in different places and then you'll really get a feel for the variety overall.

Or just taste the same fruit from your location at different ripeness.. because you're not going to grow a orange in Florida that taste like it was grown in Cali

Jacob, You can pick up a 3 gallon tree from benders nursery in Davie for like $35.00... plenty of other nurseries in Broward have them... Wild Flamingo just do a quick google search for local nurseries... A grafted tree will give you fruit with a few years as a seed grown tree may wait 5+ years to fruit or longer
                     Good luck and welcomer to the forum
