Asmina triloba 'Susquehanna'

Breeders' favorite, due to its large fruit size, few seeds, rich and sweet paw paw flavor, and firm but melting texture. Reliable yields and a durable skin round out this Southern beauty's desirable characteristics. Late to ripen, and well worth the wait!

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. Needs 400 chill hours and 2200 Growing Degree Days (GDD) to set and ripen fruit.

USDA Zone: 5-9

Grow Height: 10'-15'

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: October
