Pickin' up paw paws

  We were excited to try a paw paw for the first time the other day and even more excited at how good they tasted.  Our young trees have yet to bear fruit so we visited the man we got our trees from in Wilkes County.  He treated us to a taste from his trees and the paw paws are as close to a mango as you can get this far north.  We also had our first jujube from our own tree the other day - a great date like little fruit.  This was the only fruit from all three trees, but we're looking forward to bigger harvests in the years to come.  In the meantime, some of our other fruits are coming on strong - we've been enjoying figs, asian pears, and even some muscadine grapes (from our much neglected vines).
