Paw Paw Plants (Asimina triloba) Plants
Paw Paw (Indiana banana, American custard apple, banangois) hardy to zone 5. There are some reports it will survive in parts of zone 4 nowadays but the fruit production may may not be as abundant. The nutritious greenish yellow fruit appears after the beautiful tulip like blooms. The taste is a something like a cross between a banana and a mango. Best fruit set with 2 or more trees. Seeds are inedible. This is an open pollinated variety, so you can expect some variation. We think that is a good thing.
Paw Paw likes rich moist soil. It is a native to the United States and is well suited for your garden with few pests and needing little care. We have had mixed results here in Zone 4b.
