It's Paw-Paw time again

My house and garage smell like Paw-Paws. Have a pile on my work bench, and brought some in the house for the wife.

I packed up the family and drove over to York for the annual paw-paw festival on Saturday. They were sold out of paw paws...

What kind of geographical settings are you finding them in and what do you like to do with them? I never even knew these were a thing until last year and am fascinated.

Greene County is simply loaded with them. Most I see are in lowlands near water sources

I have a woods very close to my home that is loaded with Paw Paw trees. Most folks don't know what a paw paw tree looks like. When I to told the land owner his woods was full of paw paw trees he asked me what they were.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Paw paws are a fruit that grow in moist woods. The trees have big leaves and the fruit is elongated like a pear but no fat end. They taste something like a banana and have seeds. They are bitter if you pick them too early, the best time s when they start to develop black on the skin. I am not crazy about the flavow, when they are ripe the flesh is kinda like a pudding.
