I was over 40years old before I saw real ones(not seed catalog), I was on business in the NorthEasten tip of West Virginia, right on the Potomic.
was mid September and seen em laying on the ground, all them on the ground were buggy, used a stick to knock down some semi ripe ones, wrapped them in news paper and brought some back to Arctic Coast Alaska for my kids to see, They love the taste!
TSA wasnt as squirrley as they are today
Love the creamy taste, kinda diffrent but not bad.
Never had many but bet they'd taste great in a custard pie?
