During the Jungle Book, Baloo mentions a “paw-paw” fruit during the song “Bear Necessities.” Did you know, that the paw-paw  is Ohio’s native fruit? People describe the fruit having the texture of a banana, but tasting like a mango! Oh, and it is only ripe for a day! There are a couple places you can try the fruit, including an Ohio Paw Paw fest that happens every year, in Albany, Ohio! Who knew, right?
