Are these young pawpaw trees?
« on: June 11, 2022, 12:19:23 AM »
I came across a patch of these small trees on my property. I thought that they may be pawpaws. Can anyone here confirm?

Welcome to the Forestry Forum.

Tougher question when location is not given in your profile. Help us out there.

Leaves look good for pawpaw Asimina triloba.

Yes, I believe that they are.  Crush one of the leaves and smell it.  There should be a distinct smelly odor.

They tend to show up in shaded places or edges of fields. They also don't seem to be long lived. Areas where we have them, the trees will reach typical heights then die off there and begin to show up in another spot. More mature trees have a deep red blossom that comes in early spring. Tough to beat the critters to the fruits, not that I like them. You can pick them somewhat green and wrap in newspapers like pears are done for later use. I used to take them from KS to KY for my Wife's granny that way.
 Kentucky State University developed improved an version for commercial use a few years back. I think it was done via collection/selection.

Thanks for the replies. I live in Northwest Arkansas. The leaves do have a distinctive smell, and I compared them to a cultivated pawpaw tree and they smell the same to me!
