Though the pawpaw is generally unknown to the American public, it is the largest edible fruit native to the US. The fruit is indigenous to 26 states, from northern Florida to Maine and west to Nebraska. As a much loved fruit, European settlers named towns, creeks, and islands after the pawpaw.

The Pawpaw has a creamy, custard-like flesh with a tropical flavor, which is often described as a combination of mango, pineapple, and banana.
