Pawpaws - The Forgotton Fruit© by Eddie Rhoades

Pawpaw - Asimina triloba - This small native tree is perfectly hardy and bears clusters of fruit that taste like banana custard. "Picking up pawpaws, put ‘em in a basket, way down yonder in the pawpaw patch". Don’t let this great heritage plant fall by the wayside. Lots of good cultivars: Sunflower, PA Golden, Blue Ridge, and Rebecca.
