Asimina Triloba Paw Paw is a small tree to 25 ft tall with big drooping tropical-looking leaves. These are up to a 1 ft long and turn brown and gold in autumn. The maroon flowers about 1-2 in across appear before the leaves in spring growing right out of the smooth gray bark of the previous season's growth. The green fruit are shaped similarly to bananas or mangos. They are 3-6 in long and hang in clusters with 2 to 9 per cluster. When ripe the fruit tastes like a creamy mixture of banana and pineapple.
