Paw Paw Fruit In the T.O
Could anyone shed some light on where to find PAW PAW fruit in Toronto?
By "paw paw", Do you mean papaya? I have heard both of these terms for the same fruit. I bought a good looking one today at Whole Foods, but have seen the same large ones on occasion at Loblaws and other supermarkets. Hope you find one.

Its in the same family as custard apple but not quite the same and it is not a papaya. I had never heard of it until recently and yet its the largest indigenous fruit in Ontario and the US, unbelievable how it hasnt been cultivated on some sort of commercial level. These are really good links about it and hopefully someone can find it here. I imagine since it is so large, its season is late in the summer like apples or peaches. Two really good links here explain it better.
