Paw Paw (Asimina triloba), packet of 10 seeds
Family: Cuatard Apple (Annonaceae)
(Uvaria triloba, Pawpaw) Perennial deciduous tree native to the Southern and Eastern United States. America’s largest edible fruit, the banana-like pawpaw looks like an escape from the tropics. Tasting like banana custard. Traditional usage: sedative, laxative medicine. Tree prefers part shade and a moist, slightly acidic forest soil. These are fresh, undried seeds that we keep under refrigeration. Please plant as soon as possible after receipt. Plant about 1 inch deep in sandy loam soil or good potting soil, mulch with well rotted leaves or coir and keep in outdoor or preferably shadehouse conditions until germination, which occurs in the spring. Transplant early or provide very deep pots to give taproot room to grow. Ultimately best to transplant to the landscape before it gets too big. I caged mine and am adding compost to get them up past the critical 6 foot height. Once trees get that high, they tend to survive pretty well. But in the mean time, Pawpaw trees need to be babied along.
