Asimina triloba 'Wabash'®

Named after "Wabash Cannonball", due to the unusual round shape to the large fruits! Enjoy good production of 8-12 oz fruits that are unusually meaty - only 6% seed. Their flavor is sweet and rich, with a texture that's medium firm, creamy, and smooth. Flesh color is a pretty yellow/orangish. This Peterson introduction will bowl you over!

Late ripening, and 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. Requires approx. 500 chill hours and 2200 Growing Degree Days (GDD).

USDA Zone: 5-9

Grow Height: 10'- 15'
