In northern Argentina, the fruit is known as mamón, but in other countries it is known as papaya or milky . It grows from a tropical dwarf tree that, starting in spring, gives fruits up to two kilos. The suckers are harvested green, but they can also be marketed mature.
Tropical fruit is not very well known. It is not much seen in the greengrocers of our country. The suckers are linked to the coastal area. Northeast. In these villages in the interior, they usually cook it in huge pots , on wood fire, and large amounts of fruit.

Those who eat it say remembering childhood that, well prepared, the taste remains intact. How to go back in time and taste the same sweet from more than 15 years ago.

It is allowed to rest all night and then cooked again to reduce the liquid and the syrup is formed.
Maybe, in your area, you won't run into suckers. If you 're lucky enough to find them, be sure to take advantage of them. These are those sweet recipes that you can 't stop spreading .
