ASIMINA TRILOBA - Pawpaw, Paw Paw
Native to North America and related to the custard apple. Cold hardy and grown as far north as New York and Michigan. This may give it promise as a rootstock for the Annonas. The fruit is edible, brown-black, with soft orange flesh tasting something like banana when ripe. The fruit must be thoroughly ripened or it is unpalatable.
