Come to Paw Paw

You may not know that it's Paw Paw harvest time, a season which lasts between three and five minutes.  Paw Paw trees line much of the Potomac River and the fruit shifts from being ripe to being rotten right in front of your eyes.  That's why, if you've ever tasted this local banana/mango tasting fruit, it's probably been in a jelly or jam. I didn't know there were 'tropical' type fruits in this region.  If you'd like to learn more than you'd ever really want to know, you can check out this link on Wikipedia.

Incredibly sweet.  Nice fruit, too.
