Beautifull orchard and i think you will need to make metal tags for the manny paw paws.
Be carefull with the wood chips thogh => Armillaria.

You read my mind. I went to your channel yesterday to see if there was an update. I remember you had one you said tasted like durian. I thought it was in an area away from the main orchard, with a number in the name. Was that the KSU 4-25? I've been looking through your older videos for it but haven't found it.

Ha! I had been meaning to do it for weeks but to be honest i think i saw your subscription notification and it spurred me!

Yes, the KSU 4-25 that i tasted, and from which my seedling came, had a definite durian quality. Granted it wasn't EXACTLY like durian but it was reminiscent. However, it might have been a fluke, because the name KSU gives it is Pina Colada....i don't think they would have had it as an advanced selection if the overriding flavor was durian (versus pineapple/coconut).

I think this is testament to the fact that pawpaws have very unpredictable flavors on any given day.

And yes, durian is probably my favorite fruit in terms of just the intensity, the odd flavor juxtapositions, and the way my brain craves it :)
