PAW PAW

(Asimina triloba) Paw Paws are interesting tree that's now being revived. Peeling the fruit's green skin reveals a mango-banana flavored custard.  They should grow well in this region, and ours are coming along nicely. Well, we're in year 2... at least 5 to go before fruit. The biggest issue so far is our mower... we accidentally mowed right over one of the seedlings. Ouch!
