Paw Paw Trees

June 21, 2012

Ever wonder what a paw paw fruit looked like? These weren't ripe enough to eat yet but this is what they look like right now.

I'm told that paw paw trees do well because deer don't like to eat them. There are quite a few trees along the C&O canal towpath where we were walking and they looked unmolested. The actual paw paw trees don't get really big and seem to be mostly concentrated around the edges, probably because they can get enough light there.

Even though there were a lot of trees there weren't many paw paw fruits. I'm not sure if something was eating the fruit or they just don't produce many.
