Title: Mammie Apples, Trinidad
Abstract: A picture of a bunch of Mammy Apples (Mammea americana, L.) on a branch. Mammy apples' diameter ranges from 10 to 20 cm. When unripe, the fruit is hard and heavy, but its flesh slightly softens when fully ripe. Beneath the skin, there is a white, dry membrane, whose taste is astringent. The flesh is orange or yellow, not fibrous, and can have various textures (crispy or juicy, firm or tender). Generally the smell of the flesh is pleasant and appetizing. Small fruits contain a single seed, while larger ones might have up to four. The seeds are brown, rough, oval and around 6 cm long. The juice of the seed leaves an indelible stain.
