Another rare find. The Pawpaw is one of this country's most over-looked fruits. Native to most parts of the United States, the Pawpaw thrives with little or no care. A deciduous, small, pyramidal tree, with 4 to 5 inch long fruit that has custard smooth, white to apricot flesh. Delicious banana-like flavor is awesome. The fruit is eaten fresh or used in salads and for making custard pies and preserves. Two trees are needed for cross-pollination.
