Although this is considered a wild plant, I have never run across it in the wild, but I did run across it in my own front yard a few years ago ( planted from a cutting made from a friend's plant ) This plant is so easy to propagate. Anyways, I almost forgot I had it and then remembered that I used it last year all summer long in salads. It is very crispy while being very juicy too, succulent like. It's leaves remind me of cactus, minus the spikes. With a little research I found it had numerous medicinal uses as well.

As I was looking through photos that I uploaded and meant to publish, I ran across this pic of paw paws which are a native fruit to Oklahoma. They are hard to find and when you do, if you are lucky, there will be a few left for you. They taste a little like a banana and a mango to me. The uglier and squishier they are, the better.
