Pawpaw (Asimina triloba)
Pawpaws produce an edible fruit that Ms. Maruskin described tasting like a cross between a banana, mango, and a hint of strawberry. I’ve never actually had one of these before so I can’t attest to its taste. Kentucky State University in Frankfort has a great website for anything you’d ever like to know about pawpaws at http://www.pawpaw.kysu.edu/.
