Pantin Mamey Ripening in May?
« on: May 27, 2023, 06:07:15 PM »
Has anyone had a pantin mamey tree ripen fruit in May, instead of late June into August? There is another cultivar called "Florida" that is supposed to be similar to Pantin, but ripens in May/June, so I am wondering if I have a Florida cultivar instead. I have some pictures of the tree and fruit. The fruit is rich, sweet, pasty (not watery) and the pulp is a pink-orange/salmon color (does not get red/pink).

Alex, wow, I didn't know the Pantin fruits get so large. Very nice looking fruit.
If you take cuttings from the tree, I would be interested in buying a few small (1/4"-1/2" diameter) cuttings. I think I have a green sapote which has not had any flowers yet so I want to graft a fruit scionwood eventually on the tree. My tree is about 8 ft tall (skinny, no side branches).
