Asimina Triloba commonly called the Pawpaw Tree, is an understory deciduous tree. Unlike other members of the Annonaceae family, the Asimina triloba is cold hardy so it  will grow in the UK. Throughout history, the fruit of the Pawpaw has been used as a food staple. The tree’s origins can be traced back to the Southeastern United States. It was one of the first American plants that was ever introduced by Peter Collinson in 1736. 

Asimina Triloba produces large, ovate leaves that measure 20 centimeters in length. During the months of May and June, unusual eye-catching purple flowers emerge that have  a pungent aroma. Unlike other flowers that depend on bees for pollination, the flowers of the Pawpaw rely on flies. The flowers also attract butterflies. Following flowering, large edible fruits appear. The fruit of the Pawpaw Tree are not normally found in food markets because the fruit has a short shelf life. During the autumn months, the foliage turns yellow and orange.
