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.
