Have you heard of the pawpaw, Asimina triloba? It’s the largest native North American fruit, and it has a tropical flavor and custardy texture. The PawPaw tree has been nearly forgotten for many decades due to the short time span each year they are ripe, they were never able to be successfully commercially transported and sold. There is even a sold about pawpaws you can look up “way down yonder in the PawPaw patch”
