Pawpaws grow on smallish trees - I've read that the trees
can grow up to 30' high - a decent size, but certainly
nothing like an oak or a maple.

I've never, ever seen one for sale anywhere (the fruit, I
mean, not the tree) - so I've never tasted one, but would
like to.  Hmmmm, maybe I'll see if they will grow in our
area and plant one.
