Pawpaw

Asimina triloba, Papaw, North American Paw Paw

 Customer Rating
This hardy pawpaw produces solitary, cup-shaped flowers and large, exotic foliage. During long, hot summers it will produce edible fruits with a delicious, tropical flavour, that can be harvested from September. In cool climates the Pawpaw or Red Indian Banana forms an attractive multi-stemmed plant that makes an unusual addition to the shrub border with its buttery yellow autumn foliage. Pawpaws are self fertile, and pollinated by insects, however the chances of pollination will improve when growing more than one pawpaw. Alternatively the flowers can be hand pollinated. Height and spread: 6m (19').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 5 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 8 years.
