Pickin' up paw-paw's, puttin' them in the basket... Question: what does a paw-paw look like? Edible? not like persimmons? Is it a fruit or a nut? long time ago..had a friend from Georgia...whose nickname among her many friends was 'Possum'... (Possum in her Persimmon Tree way down yonder in the Paw Paw Patch!) I realize Ohio isn't exactly southland but your vegetation is different from ours up here certainly...lol. Help me out?
