Pawpaws are an indigenous tropical fruit to Southern Ontario. They are higher in vitamin C than fresh oranges and higher in potassium than fresh bananas. They can be eaten at many stages, but much like a mango or banana they reach their full potential after a couple days sitting out and softening a bit. The more they soften the sweeter and richer they will become. The taste: custard + mango + banana + butterscotch. WARNING - do not eat the seeds. Spit them out like you do a watermelon.
