Northern Carolinian PawPaw

The PAWPAW (Asimina triloba) is the largest tree fruit native to North America, and is related to cherimoya, sweetsop, and soursop. It has an oblong shape and ranges from 3 – 15 cm in length and width and usually weighing 200 – 400 g. The exterior of the fruit is a thin, green, leathery skin with a delicious, creamy interior pulp with large inedible seeds. The flavour is reminiscent of mango, pineapple, banana and créme brûlée.
