Asimina triloba 'Prolific'
Common Name: Pawpaw
'Prolific' Pawpaw has large delicious early ripening fruit in early fall. The flavor is complex, with hints of banana and mango, resulting in the old common name of 'Poor Man's Banana'. The 3 lobed hanging flowers in early spring are among the more interesting bloom forms, with 3 fleshy brown petals and a somewhat unpleasant odor (since they need flies and beetles to pollinate them). The leaves are large and tropical looking.
Height: 20 Feet
Spread: 15 Feet
