Pork taste is somewhat dependent on what hogs eat, especially wild/feral ones. The wild/feral ones around here are pretty much corn, pecan, acorn and a bit of sugar cane eaters, so even the larger boars are edible. Of course the smaller sows are choice. The big ones, which can be a bit tougher, we generally turn into sausage.

If you happen to live in an area that has what we call “piney woods rooters”, those that dine on cypress knees and pine trees, you may have a different quality of pork, hence a different taste.
