Freezing paw paws

fxxySeptember 20, 2005

My tree has produced quite a bit of fruit, and I am wondering the best way to preserve them (NOT as preserves!)

Can they be frozen? If so, what is the best way?? Any ideas out there???

Sure, you can freeze them, but they won't be as good as fresh ones. But a frozen pawpaw is still better than a rotten one. Sort of like the difference between a freshly ripe banana and a frozen one. They will still taste pretty good. You can freeze them whole or scoop out the good stuff and freeze it in a container.

I usually just scoop or squeeze the pulp out into a container(remove the seeds) and freeze it. Works OK for later use in cooking.
