Anyone know anything about this new variety of mamey? From Zill. I can't find any information on it.

I planted a 15g last year and know nothing about this variety. Would love to know more. It looks like it will stay quite compact.

How did I miss this thread?  So if Zill is propagating this variety, is it another case of whatever retailer has any available they're going to charge two or three times the regular price, like what was done with the Butterscotch sapodilla?  Does Zill actually charge so much more for these new varieties they've bred?

Local had a mamee with small fruit . Sadly he has sold property .. small fruits would be worthwhile trying to propagate as the fruit is usually a bit to big. Constant pruning would keep trees small.

Looking at this site and the Dwarf Parrita they have there looks exactly like my Pumpkin Pie Mamey.

Give Dís Fruit trees a call down near homestead, saw his in ground tree in person, it is truly truly a dwarf tree, thing was maybe up to my chest growing like a bush with fruit on it, bought three scions from him and got one to take! 👍 Iíve never seen a mamey grow like that, been to lara farms before and seen all the standard ones at fruit and spice park and they are large trees, really incredible to see a mamey bush with fruit.
