Thanks, Kim -- I actually had tried calorieking.com (and many other 
sites) without finding a listing for Paw Paws -- is this from something 
you have bought?  If so, does it have any description of the size?  
There is quite a variation in size of paw paws.  But this does give me 
an idea (confirmed my notion that I was going to have to think about 
covering it when I ate them <gr.>).  Gosh, I really wish more nutrition 
sites included weight of the serving they are talking about.

Incidentally, as a Virginia native, when I say Paw Paw, I am referring 
to the fruit of the tree Asimina triloba, a native North American tree, 
whose fruit are currently ripening here in Virginia.  Not the carica 
papaya, also evidently sometimes called pawpaw, which grows in 
Malaysia, and is an entirely different fruit.  (That's the trouble with 
not using the botanical names for things <gr.>).  But thanks anyway,
