Yonder In The Pawpaw Patch

KSU Picture - Pawpaw FruitHow many of you know about the Pawpaw? It’s a native American fruit. I can’t say I’ve had any experience with it. Apparently there are efforts to bring it “back.” I don’t know from where but after reading about it I’d sure like to try some.

There’s a story in USA Today titled “There’s one flaw in the pawpaw.” I guess it’s a fruit that doesn’t transport well.

You can learn a lot about the Pawpaw at Kentucky State University’s Pawpaw Information website. It claims to have the only full time pawpaw research program. It’s also the home to the Pawpaw Foundation. And in case you never sang the Pawpaw patch song you can see and hear it online.
