Name that tree

So Tim and I are sitting out on this porch swing like an elderly couple staring at bushes and imagining the ocean that we can’t quite see because of those bushes. We’re watching as hummingbirds hover about tasting occasionally from the bougenvilla. Tim notices this small tree and points it out to me… But he can’t quite remember it’s name. I tease him.. “well tell me it’s scientific name” I tell him.

The problem he explains is that the scientific name is the same as the common name and he can’t remember it. He stares at the tree… Thinking… Thinking

Tim then says that when he goes anywhere tropical it’s the one fruit that doesn’t taste good. I immediately say, “you mean papaya?”

He says, “that’s it!”

Ah… Isn’t family wonderful!
