Paw Paw, Pawpaw (Asimina triloba)
Perennial deciduous tree hardy to - 20 degrees F. America's largest edible fruit, the banana-like pawpaw looks like an escape from the tropics. Tasting like banana custard, the fruit is a sedative and laxative medicine. Ongoing studies on the cancer fighting effects of constituents of this plant. Tree prefers part shade and a moist, slightly acid forest soil. We have decided to let go of a few of our top size trees (see photo) which were grown from select seed taken from cultivars that rate high in edibility. They are at least 18 inches tall and 3 years old, planted in very deep pots.
