Paw Paw Continued


Well, we waited as late as we could, and eventually harvested our Paw Paw fruit. It was still pretty firm, so we don’t think it was ripe, but we cut it open and tasted it anyway, just because.

The fruit had large dark seeds… we’ll see if one of the local growers wants to try propagating them. The texture inside resembled that of a melon, although still pretty firm. We’ve read that the texture of a ripened Paw Paw is more banana-like – this certainly wasn’t.

As for taste… Karen thought it tasted like coconut, I didn’t think it had much taste at all.
