Asimina triloba 'Prolific' is a precocious tree often bearing fruit just two years after planting! It is early ripening and produces abundant crops of medium to large, sweet, tasty fruit. Paw paw is an intriguing eastern North American (including southern Ontario) understorey tree with large, beautiful, subtropical foliage, red flowers and sweet, custardy fruits with a unique flavour like banana, mango and cantaloupe! All plants will produce fruit but you need two different seedlings or cultivars for cross pollination.
