Our local hippie organic food store has paw paw for sale.

I scored 3 of the guys.

From what I read I have a few days to use them.

 

Any suggestions other than a smoothie?

While there are many recipes for pawpaw cakes, cookies, pies and puddings, many pawpaw fans insist that the only way to eat a pawpaw is fresh & fully ripened. It's true that many of the key components of pawpaw flavor are highly volatile and can be lost during the cooking process. Most experienced cooks agree that the most successful pawpaw recipes usually involve little or no cooking.

 

The season for pawpaws is short, lasting only for a few weeks in the late summer and early autumn. Fresh pawpaws cannot be stored for long periods, so we must enjoy them while they are in their brief season. Fully ripe pawpaws last only a few days at room temperature, but can be successfully kept for a week or more in the refrigerator. For maximum flavor, allow the fruit to finish ripening at room temperature for 2 to 3 days before using. Never eat the skin or seeds.

I am trying to grow paw paw trees.

 

Paw paw requires male and female trees for pollination and fruiting. One of my paw paw trees died. So I need to buy another one. Not sure which sex is my surviving one.

 

Anyone know how to tell a paw paw tree and a maw maw tree?

I got a PawPaw in a CSA once, and have been desperate for a source of them in abundance, since. 

 

PawPaw ice cream sounds like perfection.

 

I see the note about them not being preservable; but honestly, If I had, say, a box, I would cull the flesh and freeze.  See what happens.

Earthy Delights, mentioned above, sells both fresh pawpaws and frozen pawpaw puree. Neither is cheap. Both are currently sold out, although it sounds like they're expecting more fresh ones sometime soon.
