I forget who it was now who wanted me to photograph one of the Paw Paw trees growing along the edge of the C&O Canal's towpath. It's most easily identified by its fruit. As you can see here, these are still in their very early stages of development. They'll grow much larger, of course, about the size pears. My neighbor who grows them in his garden tells me they'll ripen by September and that they taste a little like a mango.
