Plowboy,ole Lazy Hoss got it right,they need to be frost bit before they are good to eat.Course by the time the frost gets them,the squirrels and other animals have usually eaten most of them.
They taste best when you have been out huntin or fencing,etc. all mawin and breakfast has worn off and you ain't ready to go back home for dinner.Also,about this time of day simmons,walnuts and hickory nuts seem to have a better taste.If you are lucky,about here you will stumble on an old abondened house with an apple or pear tree in the yard.Kick around in the leaves and find some that the deer and possums have missed,whip out your'old timer'and start whittlin away the bad spots,won't get but about one bite per fruit,but it's worth it.
Ain't never been hongry enuf to seriously chew tree bark.I'm like a sorry dog,when the goin gets too bad,I'm headed for the back porch.
BTW.Pick some paw-paws and put them in a warm place to ripen,window sill,dash of the truck,etc.They won't taste the same as the ones Mother Nature has fixed,but will still taste kinda like a nanner.
