Eight years ago, I planted some baby pawpaws. They're finally rewarding us with what's become my new favorite fruit. They're North America's largest native fruit and taste like a cross between a banana and a pineapple which is why people call them custard apples. Too bad their skins are so thin they'd never survive the trip to the grocery store. That's why, if you want pawpaws, you have to grow them yourself or be good buddies with someone that does.
