Episode 19: Have you ever eaten a paw paw? If you haven’t, you’ll probably want to, after hearing this interview with Andrew Moore, author of the book, Paw Paw In Search of America’s Forgotten Fruit.
Paw Paws are North America’s largest, edible, native fruit. Growing wild in 26 states, paw paws have been immortalized in folk songs, like Way Down Yonder in the Paw Paw Patch. In modern times, paw paws have largely been forgotten. To learn why, I speak with Andrew Moore about this delicious and highly medicinal plant. Andrew takes us on a journey through the Paw Paw Belt and shares why he is excited about the future of this tropical tasting plant.
