As the temperatures cool down around here in the coming weeks and months there are many things to look forward too, one of our favorites around here is the ripening of our Paw Paw Fruits.
Paw paw are the only member of the tropical tree family to grow in Missouri. The taste is something you can only describe for yourself once you have tried them, some describe it as a cross between a mango and a banana. These culinary delights can be found along the Loess Hills Trail, and the Boardwalk trails.

Stay tuned for more Paw Paw themed programs including hikes and maybe some culinary delights made with these juicy fruits.
