Mamey

Mamey (mammee or mammee apple) is a very delicious fruit beacause its smell is pleasant and appetizing. When unripe, the fruit is hard and heavy but its flesh slightly softens when fully ripe. Beneath the skin, the flesh can have various textures (crispy or juicy, firm or tender).
One mamey costs $0.4 dollar, people like to buy it at the streets and walk eating the fruit.
