Our Paw Paw (Asimina Triloba) trees are loaded with flowers this year, even before any leaf appeared. Here are some shots of the flowers, which promise a bountiful harvest of Paw Paw fruit, also known as Quaker Delight or Hillbilly Mango, in the fall.
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.
