Description

Asimina triloba, the American papaw, pawpaw, or paw paw, is a small deciduous tree native to the eastern United States and Canada, producing a large, yellowish-green to brown fruit.
Pawpaw fruits are the largest edible fruit indigenous to the United States! Pawpaw fruits have a sweet, custard-like flavor somewhat similar to banana, mango, and pineapple, and are commonly eaten raw, but are also used to make ice cream and baked desserts.

A. triloba is a large shrub or small tree growing to a height of 35 ft (11 m), rarely as tall as 45 ft (14 m).

Type: Hardy tree

Hardiness zones: 5-9

Location: Sun or part shade

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors.  Soak the seeds for 12-24 hours before planting. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 60-90 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-90 days after the warming period, though some can take longer. Do not discard the planting tray, as patience is needed, and they are well worth the wait.
