Question: What the Heck Is a Pawpaw?

By Anna Dunn, June 29, 2016

A: Pawpaw is not a cutesy name for your grandpa.

Pawpaw is a fruit—one that grows in 26 states, primarily in the South—that’s a bit like a mango-banana hybrid, and it’s the largest edible fruit indigenous to the United States. Next time you meet in the region, ask your catering team to add pawpaw to your event’s dessert spread. Take a cue from famed Charleston, South Carolina- and Nashville-based chef Sean Brock by creating a pawpaw soft-serve ice cream. Or try a pawpaw cream pie. Pittsburgh-based chef Justin Severino dishes it out seasonally, and it’s easy to reimagine for groups when made in miniature pie tins. Another sweet idea is to serve a simple pawpaw pudding.
