Asimina triloba. This small deciduous tree is native to Canada. It produces very unique fruit that has a distinct tropical banana flavour and custard like texture. As it oxidises fairly quickly once cut open, it is best eaten fresh once fully ripe or made into sauces, baked goods, ice cream, puddings and curds. Pawpaws have a very slow growth habit and grow naturally as an under story tree, usually not reaching over 35 feet. We grow them from seed for increased hardiness compared to grafted stock.
Height NOT including air-prune pot: 5-7 cm; two-year seedling
Canadian Hardiness Zone: 5
Recommended Use: fresh eating, baking
Ripens: Late September
Pollination: Requires a pollinator - produce best planted in trios.
To Order for Spring 2021: orders for spring shipping or pick-up can be placed as early as December. If you wish to reserve anything before that time or have any questions, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. We sell only apples and pears bareroot in the fall, as they are most winter hardy. Everything else (as well as apple and pear) is available in spring.
