Paw Paw Trees Are Rare and Exotic Plus Produce Fruit
Paw Paw Tree
The Paw Paw Tree (Asimina triloba) may sound like a funny name, but the small tree species delivers a grande presence and large, luscious, exotic fruit that most people have never sampled. The tree is easy to grow and not at all fussy. You can even plant one inside a deep container. All it takes is sun, shade, and well-draining soil to please the Paw Paw.
USDA zones 5A-9 are considered the best for maintaining a healthy, thriving Paw Paw Tree, and it does especially well in the South's temperate climate. The hardy tree grows into a cone shape with thick, drooping, green leaves that turn a lovely yellow shade in autumn. The plant also produces deep purple flowers. Deer stay away from the trees that can reach a height of 25 feet at the most.
To grow the fragrant and yummy fruit, nursery experts recommend planting at least two different grafted varieties of Paw Paws for the correct pollination. A layer of mulch is excellent for the tree to help it retain moisture and create low soil temperatures.
Fans of the fleshy fruit say that the Paw Paw tastes like a combination of mango and banana. Bakers are now incorporating the fruit into their desserts for its elegant quality, creamy texture, and excellent nutritional aspects.
