I once walked with fellow fruit-nut friend Stuart Wilson through a pawpaw
experimental seedling orchard at the Wye Station on the eastern shore of
Maryland. We sampled fallen fruit. We couldn't tell ANY difference in taste/quality
of the flesh from tree to tree. I admit though, that our taste buds were saturated
quickly, and we didn't use anything to "clear our palates" between trees.
