What are pawpaws?

What are pawpaws? The muffins sound interesting but I have no idea what pawpaws are. I know that my pets have paws...hahaha


It is a funny name when you think about it! Pawpaws are the largest edible fruit that is native to the United States. The unique flavor of the fruit resembles a blend of various tropical flavors, including banana, pineapple, and mango. The flavor and custard-like texture make pawpaws a good substitute for bananas in almost any recipe. The common names, 'poor man's banana,' 'American custard apple,' and 'Kentucky banana' reflect these qualities.
