      They're supposed to be cousins to cherimoya/soursop. Cherimoya and soursop taste really weird...its like sweet, sour, tangy and fibery.

      LOL. Well you have a bit o time to wait, seeing the size of the twigs. I don't know how the two fruits you mentioned taste. Hope the little guy grows up big and strong and produces many paw paws for you

      I suppose it all depends on how much rain they get.

      Your pawpaw looks great. Sitting on the farm porch looking at mine. I'll get a pic.

      Pawpaws taste like a banana custard, pineapple with HUGE seeds. 2 pawpaws in front and a plum tree behind

      To me Paw Paw taste like cross between banana and a mango. I was told the reason you don't see them in stores is because the do not ship or store well. A friend in WV harvest hers from trees in the wild. I have tried 6 trees in my zone 6 garden none survived. A trick for good pollination is to hang some rotted meat on tree when flowering ( Paw Paw are not pollinated by bees but by flies)

      I just ordered 400 2 year pawpaws for our seedling giveaway in april. Hope they look as good as last years.

      My wild pawpaw at the farm, fruit has disappeared except for 3 I'm watching. Me and the raccoons and deer. I think next trees are going in the home yard. My persimmon are almost ready.

      I found a nursery close to the farm, will be ordering some larger trees.

      Birds will eat your grapes too unless you cover them with bird netting.

      Ew. But I guess that makes sense because some people say that the flowers really stink.

      My trees haven't grown at all since the last pic in June.
      No fruit this year from my persimmon tree or my figs

      The only thing I was able to fruit was tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and cucumber.

      We had a doe come by and eat all the cucumber vines. And some of the tomatoes.
      I hung Irish Springs bar soap around the garden and that seemed to have worked at keeping the doe away. Plus my garden smells fresh and clean

      Peach trees did very well this summer. All other fruit trees did poor. They are lucky I love a fruit tree's spring flower or they would be firewood.

      Being blessed with good weather... albeit it over 100F this week which is not normal, I'm able to grow a large assortment of fruit trees. I think I'm up to 40 different fruits/berries/nuts so far. I have 2 varieties of cherimoya and if paw paws taste anything like those, they are worth the trouble. Mark Twain once referred to the cherimoya as "the most delicious fruit known to men." What is didn't mention is that they are very seedy which makes them difficult to eat.

      We have a couple cherimoya trees and if there were no such thing as Kent mangos, I'd agree with Mr. Twain.

      Earlier this year we (I ) started to redo our landscaping and I moved these little guys from the side of the yard to the back. The back is mainly wooded. I figured less UV light hitting them would make them grow better.
      As luck would have it, a tree fell and pretty much crushed one of them

      So...I tried to save the tree by cutting it off at the stem and grafting the leader back onto it.

      Disclaimer: I don't know what I am doing but did watch a Youtube video on it
