THE FULLEST DAY OF SUMMER
THE PAW PAW
This strange Appalachian fruit called a “paw paw,” helps a young woman find her way. Paw paws grow wild in the woods of Southeastern Ohio and the area beyond. They come into season for only a couple of weeks in September. The fruit tastes like Wrigley's Juicy Fruit Chewing Gum and the tune, "Picking up the paw paws and putting 'em in your pocket," is a children's song that has passed down through the generations.
