Pawpaw - Asimina Triloba

The American Pawpaw, Asimina triloba, is a deciduous tree native to the eastern United States and Canada.  Mature Pawpaws produce an edible fruit that has the interesting flavor profile reminiscent of a mango mixed with a banana. Although the Pawpaw is widespread and abundant in nature, the fruit typically is not found in supermarkets because of its short shelf life and unappealing appearance. Don't be fooled though - Pawpaws are delicious and growing in popularity.

Pawpaws have been cultivated for many years, and some very special varieties have been created. Peterson Pawpaws are widely known as dependable. Cultivars such as the Shenandoah, Susquehanna, Rappahannock, and Allegheny, Potomac, and Wabash are among the most widely known and shared among enthusiasts.
