Those are really pretty! Do they become a fruit? I think I've heard of Pawpaw as something edible.

Catherine-- yes, they make a fruit. They look closest to a mango, but come in a hand like bananas. They have a yellow flesh and tropical taste, kind of a cross between banana and pineapple. They must be eaten fresh, as they become bitter if allowed to begin browning. Great in fruit salads and smoothies.
