Try Paw Paw, sometimes spelled Pau Pau

Pau Pau seems too elongated and has less seeds

I'm afraid not.The top photo in my last post is a kaki so you can see the difference from the inside.

I've sent an email to my brother in law in Spain who, also ate one last year so I am hoping he can remember the name.

 I do remember that the smell of the fruit itself wasn't particularly pleasant but, the taste was delicious

I was given these these seeds about 6 months ago and I now cannot remember what they are.... should have labelled them.

All I can say is, that I think they are fruit seeds

 

Any help in the identification much appreciated...

What is the best method to dig up (how far from the trunk) and, best method to replant.  Also when is the best time to dig them up?
