In Search of America’s Forgotten Fruit

by Andrew Moore

Explore the past, present, and future of this unique fruit. Pawpaws are the largest edible fruit native to the United States. It grows wild in twenty-six states, so why have so few people heard of the pawpaw, much less tasted one? From Georgia to Illinois, Ozarks to the Appalachians, discover pawpaw lore and knowledge not only from the plant breeders and horticulturists working to bring pawpaws into the mainstream, but regular folks who fondly remember picking pawpaws way down yonder in the pawpaw patch. Delve deeper into questions about American foodways and how economic, biologic, and cultural forces combine, leading us to eat what we eat – and sometimes to ignore – the incredible, delicious food growing all around us.
