The Pawpaw (Asimina Triloba) is a small deciduous tree producing a large, yellowish-green to brown fruit. Grows to a height of 25′ at maturity. Pawpaw trees are capable of rapid growth, under ideal conditions. They respond well to mulch, an absence of weeds, an acid soil high in organic matter, and applications of fertilizer. Plant at least two trees for fruit production, to ensure cross~pollination. Pawpaw fruits have a sweet, custard-like flavor somewhat similar to a banana, mango, and cantaloupe and are commonly eaten raw.
