Year Round Mamey
« on: July 04, 2023, 02:54:10 AM »
Is this the best selection of cultivars for year round Mamey sapote?

Tazumal  Jan-Feb relatively low quality

Pace Mar-Apr very good

Cepeda Especial Apr-Jun modest quality

Pantin Jul-Aug standard of excellence

Lara Sep-Nov I donít have trees or source of scionwood

Abuelo Oct-Nov I donít have trees or source of scionwood

Viejo Dec very small fruits but good

Off topic. I'm going to start growing mamey. The small cultivars or the very red cultivars are what I am interested in.

Excalibur and lorito are great red ones.

I would try and get these 2 to fit in for year round.

I did.

I have Lorito too. It is said to bear at the same time as Pantin though. Do you know the season for Excalibur?

Yes, but Iíve heard from a knowledgeable source that Lorito is the superior fruit.

You could also add green Sapote (close enough to mamey) for more winter fruit.

Wow thanks. If Excalibur bears in winter I definitely need to add it.

I agree. We really like green sapote. We have Makawao green sapote and the other Hawaiian selection Poamoho. I havenít tried Whitman.

Pantins here can be ripening at any time of the year and trees can have more than one crop.
