Paw-Paw Plant | Asimina Triloba

A large shrub native to the US that thrives in the UK

The Highlights

    • A large shrub native to the eastern US which thrives in the UK climate
    • Large, slightly drooping, elliptical, medium green leaves retain a vibrant green colour well into autumn before turning to a brilliant yellow
    • The pulp of the ripened fruit is a vibrant yellow that was once used as a dye
    • Cup-shaped, purple flowers blossom in spring, and give way to edible, rectangular, yellow/green fruits which mature in early autumn
    • The sweet flavoured fruits bare an uncanny resemblance to bananas
    • Fruits can be eaten straight from the bush but are also great for making ice creams or pies
