A pawpaw and a papaya are two entirely different fruits, the pawpaw is the only indigenous North American fruit. It was eaten by native american indians and was called the "poor man's banana" by early settlers. Pawpaw's can be purchased from Integration Acre's along with pulp and other pawpaw items, visit their website for more on pawpaws and to order your own.
