Asimina triloba Native to North America and a staple of the Native Americans, these prized fruit are wonderful raw, or in a vast array of recipes from sorbets to beer. The pawpaw's exotic, tropical-tasting, 3-6 inch long fruit has a flavor reminiscent of bananas with a texture that's enticingly smooth and creamy. Exceptionally high in protein, the fruit are also rich in vitamins and minerals. These sturdy, slow growing trees reach a height of 12-15 feet, are naturally disease and pest resistant, and hardy to zone 5. Two varieties are needed for cross pollination.
