Asimina triloba produces a yellow-green fruit that is the largest edible fruit indigenous to the United States . The pawpaw is an understory tree that prefers well-drained, deep, fertile soil in hilly upland habitats. Pawpaw flowers are insect pollinated but often have trouble attracting pollinators, as the flower’s odor is faint to non-existent. Fruit provides browse for animals such as raccoons, foxes, opossums, squirrels, and black bears.
