Pawpaw

Description
Attractive native tree with large, light green leaves produces tropical-looking fruit with a sweet flavor and custard-like texture. The fruit, favored in dessert recipes, is best eaten shortly after picking—thus you won't find this prized fruit often in grocery stores or at farmers' markets. Fruits grow under the leaves. 3-4' bareroot. Asimina triloba
