I've never seen fruit on the local patch but enjoy the zebra swallowtails that it supports.

A fascinating look at a native fruit that should be well known to all of us. Tastes "like a combination of a mango and a banana with the consistency of custard" - I would love to actually try one! Maybe a few recipes would be a good addition. A fun read.
