Asimina triloba 'KSU-Atwood' is an introduction from the Kentucky State University paw paw breeding program. It ripens in mid season with incredibly heavy crops of up to 150 fruit per tree! The fruit is rich and delicious. 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 plants for cross pollination.
