The American Pomological Society is the oldest fruit organization in North America, founded by Marshall P. Wilder in 1848 to foster the science and practice of fruit production and variety development.

Mamey sapote (Pouteria sapota) is a slow, growing tropical fruit found in Mexico, Central and South America, Caribbean, and Florida. Mamey sapote is produced on a small scale in Australia, Florida, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, and sold fresh or frozen by local vendors. Fruits are also used to flavor beverages and deserts.
