Answer: Hi Linda

Your Paw Paw has anthracnose, which is a common disease of this fruit. The treatment is to apply Liquid Copper as a spray to the foliage, which is better done in the winter to prevent the outbreak.

If the spread is very bad, then I would suggest cutting the plants back and starting them off again.

Kind regards
Ben
