Ever have a banana Daiquiri made with unripe bananas?

I've never had a banana Daiquiri before...If I ever get one, I certainly hope it is not made with an unripe banana!

Interesting about George Washington...I am half-considering planting them here (and persimmons, perhaps) even though I'm a little out of their range. I figure, if I am going to grow 2 or 3 Fuji apple trees as a food crop, I could grow these two as well. If I find that I don't enjoy the taste, I'm sure wildlife will enjoy them. (I'm sure I'd share even if I do like them.)
I am pretty sure you need more than two pawpaw so that they can pollinate each other (if you want fruit).

I'm almost sure you are right. Same with persimmons, I think.

Right now they are pretty low on my list...there are so many other natives that are locally indigenous that I still want to add. That said, if I stumble across some at the right price, I'll likely scoop them up.
