Fig tree and Paw Paw fruit

Hi All,

  My fig tree made it through the winter this year without dying back!  Can't wait for figs.  The Paw Paws are native to this area - I've got a small grove of them in the woods.

My congrats! 

I have a huge fig tree as well!  It looks just awesome and needn't that much care! I think we'll be able to get figs just next  year. By the way, you  can try  flv to mp4 converter  http://convertflvtomp4.org/ on my site.  I hope  you will like it!

Hi Gisette, The fruit
Hi Gisette, The fruit consistancy is more custard-like than fruit. Dehydrating would make it way to concentrated! It needs to be added to something - just don't know what. The taste is good(cross between banana and pear IMO) - just needs to be toned down. Hey, they're free and something cool to feed to visitors.. Beth

Interesting, Beth! I wonder

Interesting, Beth! I wonder if the paw paws would make nice dehydrated snacks. Paw paw chips. I've never seen one around here.

Hi Gisette,   Fig roots

Hi Gisette,

  Fig roots survive in zone 7 if in a protected area - they'll resprout but don't bear much.  Fig branches sometimes survive (like this year) and bear a good crop! This was a free fig that I got when one of the seed companies had a free $10 coupon. Paw Paws are good - in small amounts for me (very sweet - almost too sweet).  They've got big seeds.  I've never found anything interesting to do with them (besides an attempt to make ice cream that was really awful - so sweet it'd make your hair curl!).

Beth

Wow, Beth! Never would have

Wow, Beth! Never would have thought a fig would survive your winters! My mother had a fig tree growing up - in Los Angeles.

Are pawpaws good?
