Pawpaw

This genus of shrubs and small trees consists of about 13 species. They are native to parts of North America. The name is said to be the Latinized version of a French version of a Native American name for these plants. Wow!

Pawpaw trees are grown for their fruit which are said to taste somewhat like a combination of mangos and bananas.
