Paw Paw - Asimina triloba



Paw Paw, scientifically known as Asimina triloba, is a deciduous tree native to the eastern United States. It thrives in moist, fertile soils and is commonly found in understory habitats of forests and along riverbanks. The tree is known for its large, tropical-like leaves and distinctive fruits. Paw Paw fruits are greenish-yellow, custard-like berries that ripen in late summer to early fall, with a flavor often described as a blend of banana, mango, and pineapple. The fruits are edible and highly valued for their unique taste, often used in jams, pies, and other culinary creations. Paw Paw trees also have ecological significance, providing food for wildlife and supporting biodiversity in native ecosystems.
