An ideal plant for our latitudes – the slow-growing and completely frost-resistant Paw Paw “The Indian banana” as the Canadians call the plant. Known as Paupau or as Dreilappige Papau. The actual derivation comes from the name papaya, although this fruit is an Annonaceae. The home is eastern North America until far high into Canada. In nature, the deciduous tree with the sausage or banana-like fruits is about 2-5 m high. The Asimina often grows multi-stemmed, with pyramidal growth and thin, large up to 30 cm long leaves that turn golden yellow in the fall. It is completely winter hardy and loosely creates sub-zero temperatures down to -25 ° C.
