HI Shar in Alaska! boy this message is covering the length of the Pacific, huh? I sometimes call my beloved papayas "pawpaws", because that is what we called them when I was a kid in Mexico. As an adult, I knew there was another fruit that was actually called a pawpaw for real, but I had never seen, nor tasted one. Your lovely article has convinced me that I should! I loved your story about the play house/cabin and landing on your backside amidst a pile of pawpaw...I could picture it all! Thanks for the wonderful article, keep it up!
