You know all this talk about odd trees and their fruit reminded me of
one I tasted 2 months ago. Just like the  shipova (Pyrus x Sorbus). I 
always heard it wasent anything to get excited about; at most it was 
just a novelty to tease your friends.  But I went to a fellow member's 
orchard (Lester Davis)a while back and he had one with its "fruit" 
falling around everywhere. When I came back home a tried it, I was 
quite surprized how tasty it was (or at least as a novelty). Beyond 
the fact that it is a very odd looking fruit; not something that I 
would look at and want to eat. It looks like dryed worms, and that its 
kinda dry, chewy like a fruit leather, I found the taste to be quite 
nice.  Very honey sweet almost tangy. One friend said it was like wine 
grape raisin, but I found it the same but leaning toward a sweet 
potatao flavor.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had done anything with this fruit.
It seems like it could make a nice tart. Im read that there is a drink 
called "tree honey" made from it. I cant find any recipe.

Anyone would like to share there thoughts (or recipes) on it?
