Pawpaw Seedling (Asimina triloba)
North America's largest native edible fruit! Native to PA, pawpaws are one of the easiest fruit trees to grow in our area. They have very little pest and disease problems and give perfect fruit without spraying. Pawpaws are not self-fertile so you need at least two different pawpaws for pollination. We grow ours from seed we collected from wild trees in PA. Trees thrive in partial shade but fruit best in full sun. Typically grow to about 20' but can be kept smaller through pruning. All our pawpaws are kept in deep 14" tree pots that keep the taproot intact, a very important thing for pawpaws! Deer resistant.
