Asmina triloba 'Benson'

Selected at Kentucky State University for its heavily productive, early-ripening, round, tasty fruit. It has a delicious flavor with hints of mango and pineapple, and a rich, fruity aroma. It is widely adaptable and an excellent choice for areas that have cooler summers.

Unusually disease-resistant with pretty, smooth, green skin when ripe. Hand pollination will increase fruit set, alternatively, adding a small pile of decaying meat to the base of each tree just before blooms open will bring in the flies and beetles that pollinate these unusual trees. Shade from direct sun during first 2 summers - even mature trees may benefit from afternoon shade in hot climates. Also protect young trees from slug and snail damage.

USDA Zone: 5-9

Grow Height: 10'-15'

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: September

Pollination: Need Pollinizer
