Pawpaw - (Carica papaya)
Other friends include the big spider that has strung a web between this Pawpaw and Bay tree catching insects at night and sleeping? curled up in a leaf by day. All manner of insects, beetles, bugs, worms, grasshoppers and flies in the litter below and leaf canopy, making homes in the gaps between swelling fruit. Me, I love the perfume of pawpaw flowers and the fruit on occasion, mostly the chooks get to eat it, and the flying foxes, another friend.
