Re: Gene's greenhouse NOW Sycamore

Me either, Ceres, but it's touted as one of the better [some argue the best of] Annonaceae fruits. That's heavy duty company--other Annonaceae fruits include the sweetsop, soursop, atemoya, cherimoya, bullock's heart, and on and on. There is also one native to the Everglades [whose name escapes me]; it's not terribly good, but it shows promise for selection and/or breeding. [Where's Burbank when we need him?]

Personally, I find the sweetsop, ripened on the tree then cooled in the fridge to be the best of all possible fruits. Even better than a tree-ripened Georgia peach, California apricot, Japanese plum, Korean pear, or [without question] "anywhere" apple.

I can not recall ever tasting a pawpaw.   What a wasted life!
