Asimina






ASIMINA TRILOBA.--Virginian Papaw. Pennsylvania, 1736. This is a

curious and uncommon shrub that one rarely sees outside the walls of a

botanic garden. The flowers are dark purple or chocolate brown, fully

2 inches across, and succeeded by a yellow, oblong, pulpy fruit, that

is relished by the natives, and from which the name of North American

Custard Apple has been derived. In this country it is quite at home,

growing around London to quite 12 feet in height, but it wants a warm,

dry soil, and sunny sheltered situation. As a wall plant it does well.
