My Dad and his siblings grew up in Coconut Grove feasting on these from the tree in their yard. Today I picked my first ever ripe Scarlet Mombin (Spondias purpurea) fruits from that baby tree that Tanja Vidovic snagged for me at ECHO last year that is now easily 15 tall and 8 feet wide! The yellow flesh had EXCELLENT flavor that reminded me a lot of strawberry, the pit much smaller than I had imagined. Cuttings root EASILY for me so I'll take more to share plus to have spares for me as it is quite tropical and even here in south Tampa frost is possible. Woo hoo!
