Asimina are a genus of plants within the Annonaceae family, native to the US and Canada. They are commonly referred to as pawpaw. The genus name was first given by French naturalist Michel Adanson between the years of 1727 – 1806. The earliest referral of Asimina was documented in 1541 where native Americans where cultivating the plant near the Mississippi River.
Asimina are deciduous or evergreen shrubs or small trees with large and attractive oval leaves. Purple flowers develop to adorn dark branches in the spring with fleshy green and yellow fruits to follow during the autumn. The fruit is extremely perishable but edible. It can be used similarly to a banana. Asimina are commonly referred to as ‘pawpaw’. They are best suited to wall-side borders in a city, courtyard or Mediterranean garden style. You should expect to see Asimina grow to an approximate height and a spread of between 4-8 metres (13’).
