The American pawpaw (Asimina triloba) is in the family of Annonaceae (Custard Apple Family), also known as Indiana Banana, Hoosier Banana and Poor Man's Banana. It is usually eaten as fresh fruit or processed into desserts, although there are many other uses as well. This is not the same fruit as the pawpaw in Australian, Caribbean or "English" English. That pawpaw is the same as the papaya.
