I suggest you try the fruit. I love it, but it isn't for everyone.

cheers,

I've never tasted a paw paw, could you describe the flavour?
Regards, GF.

I've heard it described as a banana taste, but have never had the opportunity to taste it myself. Mr. Keller says it makes an incredible wine and would love to try it. unfortunately none of the local grocery stores sell it. they do sell papaya, is it basically the same?

If you buy a tree you'll need two since they are not self fertile. They like some shade the first few years, but can take full sun after that. So either plant them in the shade of something you plan on cutting down, or provide some shade cloth for their first couple of summers.

I like the fruit, but haven't grown enough to make wine with yet.

imagine the flavor of a creamy banana, combined with a papaya. they range from intense flavor to subtle, depending on the variety and the maturity of the fruit.

cheers,
