This is my first SAA Overleese of the season!
Full disclosure: I picked it too early, so it wasn’t quite ripe yet. Maybe 3/4ths ripe, or 7/8ths ish. It was just so big and pretty on the tree, and it was starting to yellow a little bit, so I just couldn’t help myself. I still have about 6 or 7 hands of fruit left on that tree, maybe 30 or so individual paw paws, so I will update with more pictures as they ripen.
Considering it wasn’t fully ripe, it was pretty good! Obviously not as sweet or melting as it would be in a week or two. But the flesh was a pale yellow, the consistency somewhere between a ripe mango and an underripe avocado. Flavor was mild tutti-frutti ish. That will change though as they become more ripe and intensely sweet/fragrant. The skin was green, verging on yellow where the fruits faced the sun.
