Both the Papaya and the papaw are sometimes referred to as paupaw, which is thoroughly confusing because they’re entirely different fruits. The papaw is a North American native that’s a member of the Chermoya family. It can range from 2 to 6 inches long and looks like a fat, dark-brown banana. The aromatic flesh is pale yellow and peppered with a profusion of seeds. It has a custard-like texture and a sweet flavor reminiscent of bananas and pears.
