I keep running across the paw paw in gardening catalogs, and I'm curious. The flavor is supposed to be something like a cross between a mango and a banana, but I've never tried it. According to what I've read, the fruit goes bad too quickly for it to be a commercial product, so does anybody know how I might taste this before I invest in the two or three bushes required?

Perhaps a local farmer's market may have them. I have heard of them, but never lived in an area where they were commonly grown.

Pawpaws grow wild here in West Virginia. They are not bushes though, they're trees. The comparison of a cross between a banana and mango is fairly accurate. If the fruit is not quite mushy ripe, it has pineapple notes too.

There's a PawPaw Festival in Albany, Ohio, if you're up for a little travelling. Smile They make all kinds of dishes and desserts with paw paws!
