Asimina triloba 'Ford Amend'

Selected in the Pacific Northwest and grown since 1950. Flavorful, green-yellow fruit with orange flesh; an early-ripener ready to eat in late September.

The paw paw is the largest edible fruit native to North America. Well-known in much of the eastern United States, the tree has long, tropical looking leaves and produces greenish, oblong fruit (3” to 6” long) with a pulp that tastes like vanilla custard. You can just take out your spoon and eat the delicious treat. While the paw paw tree grows well in much of the nation, it needs a long hot summer to ripen its fruit and only the earliest-ripening cultivars stand a chance of maturing in the cooler parts of the Pacific Northwest. The pulp has big seeds that are easy to spoon out and discard or plant to grow additional trees.
