PAWPAW (Asimina triloba)

The pawpaw is the largest native fruit in the U.S. Fruit are greenish-yellow, 3-5" long, and hang in clusters of 3-7. The nutritious, soft, yellow pulp has a rich, banana-custard flavor. Pyramidal shaped trees reach 30' high. Plant at least 2 different varieties for pollination, 15-30' apart. Trees bear in 3-4 years. Avoid planting pawpaw trees in heavy, poorly drained soil.
