Delicious Apache giant

I live in South Texas and I ordered your Apache Giant seeds about three years ago. As soon as the seeds arrived, I planted them in our backyard and the fruit grew very large and heavy. I was so amazed how beautiful they looked. I shared the Apache giant with my family members, neighbors, and they loved it. I told them to save the seeds or to bring me the seeds so that I can safe them. I even took my mom a picture with one of them. They are very fresh when they are cut in half and it smells so fresh and awesome. With half of one Apache Giant fruit, I made a full family meal. I saved the rest in the freezer. I grew 15 of them and I had them all in the kitchen. Nobody knew what they were. I told my family they are better than potatoes. I still have some more seeds and I have them in a cool area. I am hoping this year the seeds well sprout again. I am so happy with the Apache Giant. In South Texas, nobody sells them and if they would it would be very expensive to buy. Thank you very much for the seeds.
