Pawpaw Hunting Addendum

Want to learn more about pawpaws? NPR has got you covered! Just six days after Ryan and I took Sagan Pawpaw Hunting at Fountainhead Regional Park, NPR did a story on “Foraging for America’s Forgotten Fruit“. You can listen to the full story online.

I also recommend watching their Tiny Desk Kitchen video (embedded below). It reveals their harvesting technique is very similiar to Ryan’s approach. They also put up a “Taste a Pawpaw” stand outside of the NPR offices and got people’s reactions.

As for reactions, when I introduced my father to pawpaws, his reaction was this:

“Ew, it’s ugly!”

He also complained about all the seeds and that it didn’t look “worth it.”

Despite all that, he still tasted the fruit…and rather liked it. : )
