There are a few trees at the Toledo Zoo too....  Only place I've identified
pawpaws beside my own yard.

While they are not a wild population, we do have paw paws growing in one of
the gardens here on the Michigan State University campus.  They are a shaded
area and I have never seen any fruit on the trees.  The campus is z5.

That sounds about right. I know of 3 wild populations, 2 are near Ann Arbor,
and another west of Grand Rapids in a beautiful floodplain.
Never seen fruit or flowers on any of them, they are all growing in quite a
bit of shade. Of course I haven't always been there at the right time.
