I have never seen paw paws in the grocery stores, which means that marketing might be difficult. Folks hesitate to try new things, and most people have never eaten paw paws.
I have, and while they are almost as tasty as bananas, there will still be buyers resistance.
The fruit will ripen during a short window of time, and once the trees hit their stride you will have too much fruit to sell in the farmers markets. Is it something that the wholesalers would take?
You might reduce your risk by also planting some trees-like peaches- that are better known.
