With all due respect...fuck you guys... Now I'm jealous that this has been kept a secret. It's because I'm Mexican, isn't it! Dicks

Every bend of it... And the folks I know over that way ain't much for buying "dem nasty fancy beers".

I was informed that they reopened the Silver Saddle, new name now though. I hope they didn't clean the place up...

Their okay once ya get passed the seeds. Don't really have any around me. But they where everywhere in Columbus. Actually when I lived their I got bags of them and planted the seeds in Peoli Ohio.

I can't eat them raw, that texture gets in my head. Ruins it for me.

Jesse, we should be good to go on trespassing again this year. If everything goes as planned, I'll own that chunk in 2 years. Just an FYI, those property owners believe they own that spot you speak of. They used to have a building on it and everything. Raised animals on it and made that pond 80-100 years ago.

Funny this thread popped up. The last couple years I have been wanting to bring a couple small saplings home from strouds to plant at my place. Never ate one but looked like they would be good to eat.

Doing it this year. Going to bring a small bucket and some paper towels to wet down and wrap the roots until I get home and get them in the ground
Make sure you get them from different areas or they won't fruit. They have an extensive root system and a batch of them is often the same tree. They're also VERY hard to transplant. I'll try and preserve a few seeds if you'd like.

Mine are still hard. But I did put a couple in the kitchen to ripen. They were starting to feel softer today (3rd day). Found about eight trees on a fence row. Hoping to gather a few extras this year.
