    Might be interesting. But might work out better from further south populations. Wonder if they are in AL or LA

    I never see the fun stuff in the local markets. The fun stuff doesn't ship well.

    You have 20 trees? Wow.

    they are an "understory" tree and require a male and female tree I think.... I probably have 20 or so trees in this one patch on my farm
    the fruit are mostly seed (large seed)

    in cooking you use them like you would a banana (e.g., banana bread = pawpaw bread)
    very short shelf life... similar to a banana in that respect too

    want some?
    Most definitely.

    Never had the opportunity to try them. Wish they'd show up at a farmer's market so I could pick up one or two to try.

    Lost my source for them and can't find them now... Such a shame.
