Have you ever tasted a paw paw? What are they like, and more importantly, do you like them? I've been curious about this fruit for a number of years now but have never been able to actually taste one. They are not grown commercially so you'd have to forage for one or be lucky enough to find a local farmer who grows them. From what I've read, they are tropical fruit in the custard apple family and can be found growing wild in most areas of the United States. Depending on the variety, paw paws can be hardy all the way down to zone 4. To think - a tropical fruit tree we can actually grow outdoors here in New England!
Anyway, I need to find a way to get my hands on one, though I have a feeling that their short season may be over by now.
