Daniel, did plant your pawpaw trees or were they naturally there on your property?  I don't think your area would get much colder than the eastern parts of the US where they are most abundant, so perhaps you'll have some luck getting fruit one of these years.

Chris, are the pawpaws you eat locally grown in the Netherlands?

Wikipedia says they taste like a combination of banana and mango.  That sounds good to me!  And yes, they are very healthy to eat.

Spud, I've always liked raisins.  When I was a little kid I used to knock on the door of a nice neighbor three houses down because she would give me one of those little tiny boxes of Sun-Maid Raisins, the kind some people give out at Halloween.  And of course I love chocolate-covered raisins, too!

I've tasted pawpaws but not fresh home grown ones.  The ones I tasted were goid, creamy texture like avocado but tropical fruot flavor.  i have young pawpaw trees, ranging from 3 to 6 years old, but no fruits on my young trees so far.  I dont kniw if they will produce fruit in my climate. 

Spud, that sounds good.  I usually steam brocoli or cauliflower.  Yesterday I roasted Brussel's sprouts with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, onions, rosemary in 425 F oven, in cast iron skillet.  Mix at 15 min, total cooking time 40 min.  Roasting carbonizes them a little and sweetens a little.  I also like roasted veggies because I can clean up the kitchen while they are cooking.

Just had a very delicious breakfast.  Yesterday, in the microwave oven, I cooked a couple of frozen packages of brocoli fluorets with butter and margarine, until they were quite soft.  This morning I reheated a bowl full with added MSG and Lawry's Seasoned Salt.

I've had them before with similer preparation, but don't remember being this impressed.  I also add them to other dishes, but they don't seem to dramatically improve those dishes.  

I think this will be my prefered way of eating them from now on.

Never tasted a pawpaw.  

That video mentioned "Mother f.. California raisins."   I dissagree.  I don't care for the taste unless put into cookies, but I like them dancing.  I even have an xmas DVD that has them singing.  Fun.

A couple of years ago, I bought a Cornish game hen at WinCo.  After I found out it was just a chicken, cost more, and I couldn't taste a difference from other chicken, I decided not to buy one again.

We call pawpaws "Indiana banana". Personally, I don't much care for them which is surprising being I like persimmons.

I stopped at the town's IGA to get a Cornish game hen, and they'd never heard of them!! I was shocked. Guess I'll have to stick with a chicken.

Yes of course! They're good to eat and very healthy!

Came across this video about the pawpaw.  I've never eaten or even seen one.  Just curious, anyone here ever had this fruit?

Funnily, my only exposure and complete knowledge of the pawpaw is from the lyrics of a favorite childhood song, "Bare Necessities" from Jungle Book (sung by Phil Harris.)

Since I'm having Thanksgiving alone at home, I'm thinking about getting a Cornish game hen for my "turkey". You've reminded me to pick up some cranberry sauce while I'm at the market. I think I prefer it plain.
