Pawpaw (Asimina Triloba) is a fruit tree native to the Northeast of the United States. I have been growing several of them for five or more years. At first, the deer tried to destroy them by chewing on their bark and branches. However, the trees kept growing bigger and bigger, and this year two of them are finally bearing about a dozen fruit. They are still ripening so I can’t tell how good they are yet, but they are said to taste like custard apple and cherimoya. So far the deer have spared the fruit.
