Paw Paw Tree (Asimina triloba)

A new addition to our garden. I believe Paw Paw are native to the U.S. east coast so it will be interesting how it fairs on the south coast of British Columbia. We have both a male and female shrub that survived a fairly cold Winter so here’s hoping.


  1. It’s a familiar name, but that’s about it for me, except that I associate it more with the southeast than the northeast. With your care, I bet they will both do great.

    • There is a kids song about Paw Paw – one line keeps going through my head, “way down yonder in the Paw Paw patch”. That’s the extent of my knowledge of them. Hopefully we will get some fruit.

    • Thanks Gunta, an interesting video. Now I need to go out and fertilize my trees so I get some fruit. Unfortunately they are only two feet high so I may have a bit of a wait. 😉
