Indiana Bananas in Bloom

Pawpaws are blooming all over Coffee Creek. Sometimes called Indiana bananas, they are a native to America fruit that tastes like a creamy banana pie and is shaped and colored somewhat like a papaya on the exterior and just like a cream pie on the inside.

These trees are very pretty, with long banana like leaves that provide shade in the summer.

It would be really great if the fruit would catch on as a healthy alternative to all the non-native trees that are raised for fruit in the U.S. The Indiana Banana wouldn't require a bit of pesticide to grow.
