Asimina Triloba
Pawpaw is an unbelievable tree and fruit for this region.  Imagine, if you will, a fruit the size of a mango, that smells like the most exotic tropical fruit.  Cutting it in half reveals an incredibly sweet, rich, custard-textured flesh that has a flavor profile somewhere between banana, papaya, pear, strawberry and jackfruit.  And you picked it from a tree on YOUR land in upstate NY.  Plants are magical, really!

This stunning tree grows in partial shade (it desires shade in its youth), and can tolerate Black Walnut trees with grace.  2 trees minimum for pollination, under 10 trees will probably require hand pollination since the carrion fly is it’s main pollinator.

Size:
Roughly 20’ tall and 15’ wide

Site Preference:
Shady to full sun… More shade when it’s younger.  Can tolerate wet feet on occasion.  Amazing choice for your challenging Black Walnut grove!

Hardiness:
Zone 5

Two sizes currently available, 1st year seedling, tiny above ground but with a substantial tap root ready to lock in to its new home, and 2nd year young tree bigger and more developed.  1st year trees tend to catch up and exceed older trees, but some people want it bigger at purchase time.  Choice is yours.
