A Golden Variety That Glows Among Its Peers: The Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw

  • Ripens Earlier Than Most Varieties
  • Bears Heavily
  • Disease Resistant
  • Native Plant
  • Delicious Flavor And Texture

The Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw (Asimina triloba 'Pennsylvania Gold') will surprise you when you peel away the soft yellow skin and sink your teeth into the sweet, tropical-flavored flesh.

Native Americans knew for centuries that the Pawpaw is a delicious and nutritious fruit. For centuries, they gathered pawpaws and reaped the benefits of the nutrient-loaded flesh. It is about time that you added a Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw to your yard or garden

If you like sweet, custardy fruit, then the Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw is calling your name. Its deep golden yellow pulp melts in the mouth and is very nutritious. These pawpaws are oval-shaped and grow to about half a pound, and when you take a bite, you will notice hints of mango, banana, and pineapple flavor.

If you haven't experienced pawpaw in the past, not only will you be thrilled when you eat them chilled from the refrigerator, but you can cook them into quick bread, custards, cookies, cakes. They make delicious ice cream as well as pudding and smoothies. Bring a taste of the tropics to your garden, and plant a Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw.

In the spring, this lovely tree produces pretty dark red to purple blossoms, that hang like bells from the Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw's branches. You will see hummingbirds and butterflies flying around your tree, enjoying the blossoms too. You will need to plant a partner that is not genetically the same in order to get your tree to produce fruit.

While it takes the Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw longer to bear fruit than some varieties, you will be happy that you waited when you see how much your tree produces and how delicious the fruit is. It is a smaller tree that you can use as part of your edible landscaping, and since pawpaws produce their own insecticide, you won't be bothered by disease or insects.

Pennsylvania Gold Paw Paws are cold hardy down to -20 degrees and grow well in the shade, but plant it in a sunny spot for the best yields. You might have to protect the tree while it is young from strong sunlight since it is accustomed to growing under large trees in American forests.

Your Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw will grow well in most types of soil, but it prefers well-drained loam that is slightly acidic.

Why wait? Put a Pennsylvania Gold Pawpaw in your cart, along with a partner, and you will discover what Native Americans have known for millennia.
