Ted’s Notes on Pawpaws (2016)

The author shares their own observations and notes about pawpaws, the largest edible fruit native to the United States. They describe the taste as a cross between a banana and a mango, but note that it has its own unique flavor. The flavor of pawpaws can vary over time as they ripen. Supermarkets don’t carry them because they are too perishable, but you can find them at farmers’ markets or order them online. The author also provides information on how to identify and harvest wild pawpaws, as well as how to grow your own pawpaw trees from seeds. They express a passion for restoring pawpaw patches in New England.
