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.
