Mango Paw Paw
Asimina triloba 'Mango'
One of the fastest and easiest paw paws to grow! Originally obtained from a collector in Georgia who named it Mango in honor of the vivid color of the pulp. Matures rapidly to bearing age - can start developing fruit 2-4 years after planting. Fruit is large and flesh is unusually colorful, with rich orange/yellow pulp.
Fruit ripens early in the season, so a good variety for short-season growers. Grafted onto seedling paw paws; please take great care when planting your new trees, as young paw paws greatly resent root disturbance. Protect from direct sun during first 2 summers, as leaves are photosensitive; also watch for slugs and snails, which love the tender new leaves. Requires pollination from different variety to produce fruit; plant to hand pollinate for best results.
