Asimina triloba 'Maria's Joy' is a cross between 'Davis' and 'Prolific' producing medium to large, kidney-shaped fruit with delicious yellow flesh that can weigh almost a pound. It was the winner of the Ohio Pawpaw festival's "Biggest Paw Paw Contest" in 2012. 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.
