Ok, I saw a picture of a 'mamey' here on 30bad which was posted by Willa. I commented on it cause of it's intense color and it just looked so good. I forgot aobut it for a littel bit till Willa wrote in response to my comment.
Then I just HAD to go in an internet mamey search. I found it is also called mamey sapote, or sometimes sapote. Well, low and behold I found a local place that can get them. They are all over the place US and some other places. The company is called
just Google 'Coosemans' and your city. you may get a nice surprise! I just called them, got thier hours and asked about the 2 main fruits I eat which are bananas adn mangoes.
a 40lb case of bananas is $18
a 10-12 count case of mangoes is $6.90 <--- NICE!!
I am really really excited! They are open at 11pm to 3pm the next day. I will go Monday night and raid the place!
Gosh, the mangoes are so incredibly inexpensive even compared to the other place I found that has bulk here.
Just did hte calculations on a banana. that will be somewhere around 100 bananas (+/-)
