through a paw paw
experimental seedling orchard at the Wye Station on the eastern shore of
Maryland.  We sampled fallen fruit.  We couldn't tell ANY difference in
of the flesh from tree to tree.  I admit though, that our taste buds were
quickly, and we didn't use anything to "clear our palates" between trees."
That contradicts my own limited experience with paw paws.  I have 2 grafted
varieties, I think Sunflower and Overlease and the one I assume to be
Sunflower (much later ripening) tastes better to me but these 2 contrast
minimally compared to the huge improvement both show over 2 seedling trees I
had planted several years prior that were mostly seed and little fruit.
