The pawpaw, (Asimina triloba) is known as "Indiana banana", "false banana", and "custard apple". It grows into a small tree or shrub growing up to 30 feet. When ripe it contains several large dark seeds and has fragrant yellow-orange flesh with custard like consistency. Many people acquire the taste for eating the raw fruit. Gather them from the wild in the fall or purchase pawpaws to make Denise's Pawpaw Bread. The fruits can also be dried or frozen for storage or used in preserves, plum-type puddings, pies, pawpaw ice cream and added to yogurt.

The pawpaw is wonderful in the edible landscape as an accent plant or edible hedge that has very few pest or diseases. Seek out home nurseries for plants, or get some ripe fruit or commercial seeds and start your own. Can tolerate light shade and prefers well-drained loam.
