...a quick phone snap at a neighbours house; no-name Paw Paw. Can it be added to data-base somewhere as a generic Paw Paw Smiling ? I've looked through but can't see where it fits.

That is a Papaya.

It sure looks like Papaya (Carica papaya) to me too!

Sure doesn't fit in the Paw Paws, in my humble opinion.

Thanks each for your suggestions. Here in Australia it seems Paw Paw/Papaya are marketed one and the same reference.
http://www.planthealthaustrali...
where it notes [which the industry label as pawpaw].

Papaya (Carica papaya) Lin suggested, and seems the right place to add. Safe bet?
