Fall and Spring in two weeks

Two weeks ago the leaves turned orange and then brown and then fell. This week we have bright green leaves. Notice the fruit, the large ones are almost ripe and the small ones will be ready next year. It takes almost 2 years for the fruit it mature.

I have a name for this fruit tree:
mamey, mamey colorado, mamey de tierra, mamey rojo, mamey sapote, yuco, zapote, zapote colorado, zapote de carne, zapote mamey

This is one of our favorite trees. It ripens in summer and we freeze the excess flesh. This way we have home made mamey ice cream all year long.
