Pawpaws

Ripen in August

The largest fruit native to the U.S., pawpaws are uncommon these days even though they are indigenous to this area. I receive my pawpaws from a generous Bella Vista resident who planted a couple of trees in his yard. He said that the 2022 crop should be a good one.

Other Fruit

No Nanking Bush cherries in 2022. However, the historic pear tree in the Metfield area of Bella Vista is going to produce a huge harvest. Also, there will be lots of maypops.
