I hope I spelled it correctly. Mamones is a fruit that I enjoy buying here in David. You will see it being sold a lot along the side of the road. I understand it comes in red and yellow, but I have only seen the red ones.
It is interesting to look at and interesting to eat. You easily break through the outside skin and you find the fruit, which is similar in texture to a pealed grape. When you eat it, however, it is nothing like a grape. The fruit is soft and tough and chewy. The flavor is a combination of sweet and sour at the same time.
From what I hear the yellow ones are less acidy and sweeter. You can’t get them year round, but when they are in season, I try to buy them often.
