What an interesting tree!!! Paw Paw is from a genus of plants mostly from tropical and sub-tropical plants. It produces fruit and many people enjoy its fruit referring to it as a cross between a banana and a papaya. However, it does require pollination from distant relatives to produce its fruit, as it protects itself from inbreeding.This tree prefers moist soils and light shade to grow best.
