    Looked for Paw Paws yesterday...pretty thin year on my hunting land. I struggled on the video to describe what "ripe" is. Most people like them soft with yellowish pulp, though some like the pulp whiter--what others would think still "Green." Complicating this is the highly variable appearance--sometimes they can be spotty but still unripe; sometimes half green yet soft and ripe; etc.

    I planted some of those and some persimmons on my place years ago. I don't think either ever took off.

    I've got a bunch of trees on my place. They usually always have some. Haven't had a chance to look at them yet. An elderly lady up the road has a huge tree in her yard. It's loaded. I like em but after eating 2 or 3 I've had enough.

    I got a couple. The small one is over-ripe but plan to use the seed and plant some more. Growing up we had several good producing trees on our farm, but most died off and just not many left. 201h90906_221112-784x1613.jpg

    Too many damn coins. They will normally eat all that is on a tree before they get ripe

    I noticed several on my trees back in the summer. I like them when they turn yellow. They make good bread, like banana bread only use paw paws. I will try to post pics when they get ripe.
