Some pawpaws are fantastic. Most are alright to eat and many just aren't worthwhile eating. Certain cultivars provide flavourful pawpaw fruit.
There are many pawpaws available today. Most are wild pawpaws that people have named themselves. Certain cultivars like Hillbilly were specifically grown for the flavour, texture, size of fruit and aftertaste.
Below are some one the named pawpaws we have heard of. Just because they are on this list doesn't mean they are good, bad, or otherwise.
