Asimina triloba 'Shenandoah'

This patented new Southern variety is one of the largest and most flavorful to date, with individual fruits weighing up to 1 pound each! The fruit ripens in mid season and is sweet and flavorful with creamy-yellow, custard-like flesh.

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. Requires 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 to Part Shade in hotter climates

Ripening Time: September/October

Pollination: Needs a Pollinizer

Happy "Shenandoah", PA zone 6b/7a.

I received and planted "Shenandoah" in spring 2019 (in a pair with the "NC 1"). It started slowly initially during the first year, but ramped up in following years and reached 6' by 2022 when it bloomed (20-30 flowers, a solid & confident start). With hand pollination I succeeded to start few fruits. Absolutely delicious, mild flavor, low seed count, excellent quality fruit, exactly as described by the respected author N. Peterson. Leaves are of lighter green color, are smaller and do not droop rather are held more horizontally compared to “NC 1”, which makes both varieties distinguishable at a glance. "Shenandoah" blooms abundantly, now is APR 2023 ant the tree is covered with flower buds. In case of effective pollination, fruit finning may be needed to maintain fruit size and quality.
