Sure they’re fast.  In the wild they are pioneer species like balsa, papaya, and others that initially dominate disturbed areas in the forest or other openings.

Borderline invasive species in some areas, Although you shouldn't have to worry about that with the NJ cold!

CGameProgrammer:
I've heard mixed things about this fruit's palatability. Has anyone tasted it?

Yeah, ours is fruiting. Tastes like a super watered down fig...like sugar water with not too much sugar and a somewhat herbal aftertaste.
