My first pawpaws

My neighbor has 2 big old seedling pawpaw trees and gave me some fruit. I have some small trees but hadn’t had a chance to eat a pawpaw yet. Interesting taste…not in love with it. Kind of mango with something else. Hopefully named varieties are better, I need to get some scions this winter.

Curstardy looking. Was the texture creamy?

Sort of…almost like putty, a bit dry. I don’t think the trees are very healthy.

Tried the last 2 last night after 5 days on the counter. Should have eaten them after 3-4 days since they were so soft I couldn’t really get the meager amount of flesh away from the skin/seeds. Flavor was way better/sweeter, very much like a mango but did have that bitter aftertaste.
