Fully ripe pawpaws last only a few days at room temperature. Pawpaws can be kept for a week in the refrigerator. If fruit is refrigerated before it is fully ripe, it can be kept for up to three weeks and can then be allowed to finish ripening at room temperature.

This frozen or fresh pulp can also be used in place of bananas, applesauce or pumpkin in almost any recipe.

To freeze, cut the fruit in half lengthwise. Then, scoop out seeds and set them aside. Next, remove the pulp and store it in a freezer bag. Be sure to flatten the bag to remove all air bubbles. This can be frozen for up to 12 months.
