Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
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.

Fruit and nut trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the plant. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Water Asimina plants well during particularly dry periods.


Pawpaws should be allowed to develop naturally, removing only the occasional misplaced or damaged stem. Prune in late winter or early spring while plants are still dormant. Caution: Pawpaw seeds and leaves may be harmful if eaten.

How to grow fruit trees Fruit rootstock guide

Grow pawpaws in rich, moist, slightly acidic soil in a sheltered position in full sun or dappled shade. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Pawpaws require long hot summers to reach their full size and fruiting potential. In cooler climates, the pawpaw will form a multi-stemmed shrub.
