Does anyone here have some, I've been wanting to try them for years but have had no luck finding any anywhere.

I have seeds stratifying in my refrigerator. Interested in any of those?

I'm more interested in trying the fruit first since it takes so long to grow, I would hate to grow some and then not like them.

 

I should have worded my original post differently, I was wondering if people had the trees and would be willing to ship the fruit. I can buy the trees from Stark Bros, but they are out of stock until the end of the season. I know we are still months away from their season.

Ah, yeah, around here the fruit starts ripening in September on into October. I harvested from half a dozen or so patches last year and the flavor can vary a lot from patch to patch.

Cultivars provide a more consistently good flavor, but if you can't find any commercial orchardists in your area, you may have to get out in the woods and find some patches. They're a lot more common than most people realize.

You can order frozen pulp year round (I think) from these guys:
