  1. Courtney! Where did you find the paw paw? I haven't had the opportunity to try it before. One of the farmers we know who grows this says it is fantastic if you freeze it. Enjoy!! Christina

    1. They were at the Co-op! We haven't tried it frozen yet, but I hear they taste like ice cream!

  2. I've never heard of it. Where is it from?

    1. It's a tropical fruit that's native to North America. They aren't grown commercially, but the land grant college here in Iowa has a test field of them planted and they're trying to develop a market for them. They taste like a cross between a mango and a banana. :)

      NPR did a great story about them:
