Mamey sapote is a medium to large fruit, averaging 8 to 25 centimeters in length and 6 to 10 centimeters in diameter, and has a round, oval, to oblong shape, sometimes with tapered, pointed ends. The skin is thick, semi-rough, and light to dark brown with a textured, scruffy, and sandpaper feel.

Underneath the skin, the flesh ranges in color from orange, red, to salmon and is soft, creamy, and dense with a fine, smooth consistency and faint squash-like scent. Within the center of the flesh, there are also 1 to 4 elliptical seeds with a glossy, black-brown hue.

The seeds are toxic and inedible when raw, but they can be treated through an extensive process to remove the toxins for culinary use. Mamey sapote is only edible when fully ripe and gives slightly to pressure when squeezed. The flesh bears a complex sweet and savory flavor, containing subtle notes of vanilla, nutmeg, apricots, and root beer mixed with honeyed pumpkin, squash, and sweet potato nuances
