But now it is flowering in the fall with white flowers. Doesn't look like pawpaw. So what is it?

Could it be a loquat?

I agree , looks very much like a Loquat.

Porkpal and greene you are correct! Man who sold it to me thought it was a pawpaw. I've had it about 4 years and this is first bloom. Beautiful tree but it will never bear fruit in my climate. I wonder if it could be dug up and moved or is it too old now?

SCButtercup,
How tall is it now at 4 years old? Has it been outside every winter?

Its about 7 feet tall and planted in ground, stays out for winter, healthy as a horse.

It is an attractive tree even if the fruit does not survive your winters. I find here that it is the most vulnerable when the blooms are just setting fruit, after that light freezes do not seem to bother the loquats.
