Saramuyo or Sugar Apple

Food In Isla Mujeres

Saramuyo tropical fruit is enjoy by endemic birds at the Bird Refuge of Hacienda Chichen.Saramuyo (Spanish), 
Sugar Apple (English)
  Tropical fruit tree blooms from February to April, by June fruits are ripe and ready to eat. It has a soft scaly skin,and is also called a sweetsop. The aromatic transparent white pulp includes many hard black seeds, making it difficult to eat. The seeds are usually strained out forming a subtle, light, vanilla custard-flavored puree is which is often made into drinks,  popsicles and other cold treats.

The tree grows and produces fruit rapidly. My friend in Guadalupana planted one and was eating fruit and enjoying shade within three years, in Isla Mujeres.
