I have a question.  Is the Paw Paw mentioned in Swami the same as papaya?  When I look it up on the internet, Wikipedia seems to say it is the same thing but in other sections, they show a picture of it that is different from a papaya:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawpaw
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_paw_paw
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papaya

I’m just wondering if anyone is familiar with this fruit. Thank you for your help.

try guanabana or chirimoya

paw paw was from the Spanish word for papaya, because the Spanish Conquistadors thought the fruits were alike.

Guanábana is brazilian paw paw but it does not appear to be quite the same as US Paw Paw. I think we call it sourpus in the states.  Scientific name: Annona muricata

Chirimoya is peruvian paw paw. It is spelled differently in english cherimoya. You can get it in California, but I have not seen it on the east coast. Scientific name: Annona cherimola

In the US pawpaw includes a number of species in the genus Asimina.

papaya and paw paw are two different entries on swami, i think. i remember both being on mine with different ratings.

Paw Paws do grow in New Jersey, but that is that is towards the North end of its range.  They would not be common there.

They are an understory tree. So they need to be in the woods, but need some break in the canopy to get enough light. They want the soil to be well drained to. When you do get them they tend to grow in patches and not a single tree alone.

I did a quick search to see where one would find PawPaw in NJ:

Indigenous:

Salem County (i.e. Parvin State Park)
Glouster County
Somerset/Hunterdon County (i.e. Sourland Mountain)
Hunterdon County (Tetertown Ravine)
Monmouth County (cf: DEP)
Mercer County (Trenton Marsh)

Introduced:

Middlesex County (Cranbury - cultivated?)
Staten Island (non-indigenous; escaped from cultivation)
NY/Ulster County (near New Palz; likely result of cultivation)
Passaic County (Ringwood State Park; result of cultivation

I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains, eating Paw Paws regularly.  We picked them while still green and spread them out in single layer on newspapers in a spare bedroom.  As they ripened, the skin darkened, much like a banana will do.  Ripening develops the fruit sugars, making them a luscious treat - like a cross between a mango and a banana.

Thank you very much guys.   (((hugs)))  

So, are both fruits in the two links Paw Paw?

Victoria, may I ask which one of the fruits in this two link resemble the Paw Paw that you used to eat?

I just want to make sure I eat the right one

The first link is paw paw.

The second link is cherimoya, a relative of paw paw.

In the GenoType and SWAMI systems cherimoya has its own rating, so there is no need to use a paw paw rating for it.

A few years ago there was a thread or two about the pawpaw. We have a Paw Paw fest every September here in Athens OH. The man who startedit has a paw paw business, and does a lot to promote the growing of it among farmers in our area. You can often get paw paw seedlings there.

One Green World located in the Northwest coast is a nursery that has a lot of native and exotic fruits and has a whole section of the catalog devoted to paw paws.

I always eat gobs of them in season, and the seeds germinate easily so you can grow your own from scratch.

Thank you, Thank you again guys.

Thank you for your patience and I am so sorry for being so silly because my English is limited.  Often I'm not fully understanding everything.

Also, the name of the fruit is different, so, I need the pictures.  For example, in my Swami the fruit is called Canistel. I never know until I look it up in the internet and the pictures come up.  Then I know that it is Egg fruit which is I used to eat every time they are in season.
