Asimina triloba

Pawpaw

Asimina triloba is a native understory tree that grows throughout the eastern U.S., most common in moist forests near streams. It grows in shade to full sun, and can tolerate being grown in wet soils, but prefers to be well-drained. This tree is perhaps best known for its fruits (pawpaws), which are edible, large, and sweet. Humans are not the only ones that enjoy them; they also provide a great food source to most of the wildlife around. Asimina triloba has a tendency to form colonies, which makes it a great choice for restoration projects.
