PA-paw] Both the papaya and the papaw are sometimes referred to as pawpaw, which is thoroughly confusing because they`re entirely different fruits. The papaw is a North American native that`s a member of the cherimoya 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 custardlike texture and a sweet flavor reminiscent of bananas and pears.
