Little Know Paw Paw facts:
The Paw Paw is the largest edible native fruit in North America and a favorite raccoon snack (much preferred over your garbage), but because bees are not attracted to it, the fruit must rely on common house flies for pollination. Growers have been know to hang road kill in their fields to attract flies.
