America's largest native fruit! These are tropical looking small trees that may form small colonies. Beautiful yellow fall color. Produces fruit that can weight a pound or more and is quite delicious. Flavor described as banana custard or like a mango. By many names, hipster banana, indiana banana, latin is asimina triloba. Offering 6-12" seedling trees, plan on having grafted named varieties in the future as well. Plant them now and I can also help you graft when established if local. Fruit quality will vary with seedlings, but than can be part of the fun too, may discover your own named variety. Beautiful pest free trees that are worth growing for ornamental value alone. Prefers to grow in the shade first couple years, best fruiting later in more sun, will fruit in partial shade just fine. A great understory tree will grow even under walnut trees. To learn more, highly suggest the book "Paw Paw: in search of America's forgotten fruit." by Andrew Moore.
