The Asimina Triloba, also called Pawpaw, is very 'trendy' and it is easy to understand why!
Originally from North America, it is hardy (adult plant is cold-hardy down to -25°C), and well adapted to our regions, whether grown in pots or in full ground.
 
The fruit of the Pawpaw
The fruit of the Pawpaw is rich in vitamins, the yellow orange pulp is similar to the mango's pulp, and can be eaten fresh, in jam or in fruit purée. The tree needs 5 to 6 years to produce a first yield. The fruits are harvested between August and October.

Follow our advice to choose the right variety
Some of the Paw Paw plants cannot produce fruits by themselves. Some varieties are self-fertile, which means only one tree is needed to have fruits. Nonetheless, you could plant more than one to have a better yield.
For the non-self-fertile varieties, several trees must be planted nearby, so they can be pollinated by insects.
 
Our selection of self-fertile varieties:
 
Asimina triloba
'Prima'
This Italian variety is quite prolific. The fruits have a yellow flesh and are ripe by the mid-season, they are quite tasty.
Asimina triloba
'Sunflower'
This variety produces fruits growing by groups of three or five, they have a pale-yellow flesh, and an excellent flavour. There are only a few seeds in the fruit.
 
Asimina triloba

A good yield, the fruit is long with a green skin and yellow flesh and can be stored in the fridge for some days.
Asimina triloba
'Overleese'
This variety produces large fruits growing by groups of three or five and containing only a few seeds. They are ripe in early October.
 
 
 
 
Planfor's tip:
'the Pawpaw tree thrives in cold, dry winters and hot, moist summers. Our tip is to spread mulch at the foot of the tree and bring it manure so as to allow a good development of the tree, whether in full ground or in an adapted container.'
