Paw Paw: The delicious fruit no one knows about!
Paw Paw is a totally forgotten North American fruit. It grows wild, with no assistance of fertilizer or pesticide, drops buckets of fruit each year, and no one even knows about it! Well, very few people know about it. Its a divine fruit that is related to the cherimoya and soursop, and, like its relatives drops a highly aromatic fruit. This may not mean anything to you, but, aromatic fruits have an aroma.... which is best described as a perfume like element. Its a unique feature to tropical fruits, and the Paw Paw comes from a family of plants most usually from the tropical world. It can be used to make smoothies, ice cream, pies, and jams. Lots of uses, lots of flavor, and available for free in the woods along the east coast and way into the midwest. I know no one collects it as each year when I head to the woods to pick them up, I have no competition!
