    Pawpaws

    I planted a couple american pawpaw trees a number of years ago and they're finally producing.

    I got about 23 small-medium ones and pulped them today. I'm not sure it's worth the effort. I did about 23 of them, and got just a little over 1/2 cup of pulp.

    The med-bigger pawpaws had about 12 seeds in them, which really was most of what's inside.
    Anyone else deal with pawpaws?

    Now on to the persimmons, which aren't a whole lot better, but do yield a little more pulp.

    Oh, that's interesting. I remember in permaculture class they went on about pawpaws.

    Usually the first harvest of any fruit is pretty small, in my limited experience.
