What does anyone know about pawpaw trees? I have heard they put off fruit that is similar in tast to a bananna when fully rippend, also have heard that deer love to eat them. How big do the trees get and the fruit?

I recently purchased 41 acres in Keatchie Louisiana. It has a creek that runs through it with sandy fertile soil. It must be the right ingredients for growing pawpaw trees. The place is loaded with them. I have never seen one befor so I took one of the fruits to a nursery and found out what they are. It seems as though everytime I go exploring on the creek I find more trees that I did not know about. The person at the nursery that I spoke with said that you have to beat the coons, and opossum's to them, but I am willing to bet that if any fruit get low enough for the deer, or hit the ground the deer will love them. I can't wait to get my first taste of one late august or early october. These tree's flurish so well on my property that I am thinking of selling them.
We also have an amazing number of mullberry, black walnut, muscadines, wild grapes. I hope that it will attract deer too. We are truly blessed!

Howdy there. Been checking in from time to time, but this is the first question I have known anything about. They do bear a fruit similar to a banana but smaller and milder ( my opinion ). Trees favor creek bottoms and are very common in the south. Here in Indiana they are more like brush. Only get 3 to 6 inches thick and maybe 25 feet tall. Fruit is better after a mild frost. Sometimes the wildlife beats you to them. Not sure what all does eat them, but they go fast. Scientific name is assimina triloba if you want to try checking it out online by that name. Trees need fertile site to do well ( thats why common in river bottoms ) and will often form small clusters of all pawpaw trees. Hope this has helped. Good luck.

Daddy always said NEVER TRUST A TEXAN. Words too live by. Johson and Vietnam; Bush, SR and SNLs; Cheney, Bush, Jr and Enron; and many I've forgotten.

If you had a brain you would take it out and play with it.

Your daddy wasn't too sharp, was he? BTW, you are on the wrong thread. What does this have to do with Pawpaw trees? Like father, like son.

My alma mater says it all...... See link...

Hope this helps.
BTW, we don't have very many paw paw trees around here, even though the town and river were named thus........
