Though the pawpaw’s (Asimina triloba) only near relatives are tropical, and the pawpaw looks like a mango and tastes like a banana, they are not tropical but native to most of the eastern U.S. and even into Canada. It is hardy and relatively pest free (even deer don’t like it), and its tolerance to shade makes it suitable for intercropping with other trees.
Two trees are required for cross pollination and they should be within 50 ft. or so from each other because they are fly pollinated, not bee pollinated.
Pawpaw fruits are nutritional powerhouses, even boasting more protein than a banana. The twigs and bark are known to contain a powerful anti-carcinogen, and the fruit has trace amounts, too.
