At the Saturday market, you may have noticed Lagier Ranches with paw paws. John has been growing them for a few years but I never bothered tasting them. I wish I had.
The fruit is somewhere between a mango and a banana and if it didn't have such big pits inside, I think it would be a more popular treat. John gave me sheets of information on paw paws but I quickly lost interest. The real point is they're delicious and I'm inspired to get a few trees and see if I can't grow them in Napa.
In the photo, John Lagier, who normally doesn't look so much like David Crosby, offers up some of his delcious paw paws. I say get them while you can.
