Customer Question

My mother has a fruit tree that she calls a "paw paw fruit. Is there another name for this fruit?

Expert:  xarqi replied 11 years ago.


The Latin name is Asimina triloba.

An early name for the fruit was "Indiana banana". Also: "Hoosier

banana".

Interestingly (for me anyway), what we have here that I thought was a pawpaw is actually a Mountain Pawpaw (Carica pubescens), no relation at all! Go figure.

Since you thanked Xargi, and, you asked no follow-up questions -- may we assume that Xargi's answer met your needs?





If so, would you please honor
his effort (and fullfil your agreement) by Clicking 'Accept' in his
answer post?






Or, if you need more assistance, please post again.







Thanks in advance.

Reply to Oreport's Post: I thought I had already done this. Plus sent a e-mail to Xargi.

But are there more ideas out there on how to protect my now precious fruits from the critters out there.

We have mountain lions, deer, opossum, raccons, black bear that occasionally roam through Paradise.

Netting or fencing will help. But please do so with care not to harm the wildlife:

Dear nandavision,


You did not ask a question on how to protect your precious fruits from the critters... You asked if there was another name for a paw paw...You can not just email someone and it automatically pays them...you must press the "accept" button to do this, and he gave you a correct answer...


Thanks in advance...
