Mammea americana

Also called mamey apple, and Santo Domingo / tropical / South American apricot, this fruit is native to the northern South America, and is found abundantly in Pará. The flavor is reminiscent of apricot, and the fruit can weigh up to 4.4 pounds. Enclosed inside the hard rind, the orange pulp – sometimes fibrous and not too sweet – is usually eaten fresh, or used to make preserves, jams, juices and liqueurs. The seeds and rind are used in folk medicine to treat parasites, skin diseases, and insect bites. The trees are up to 65 feet tall and bear fruits from June to December.
