    unknown, possibly a tree?

    it was too quiet so i figured i'd throw one in here. found these plants growing rapidly in a couple spots where controlled burns were done. the location is south carolina midlands, never seen these before. not sure if they are even trees, none of these were over 8' tall.


    peace to all

    These are PawPaws (Asimina triloba), and the last picture is a classic PawPaw patch! And, the fruits are edible and very tasty, when ripe. It's said they taste similar to a banana. This is the only non-tripical member of the Custard-Apple Family.

    cool thanks, never did see any large ones or any fruit around. these were about the only plants growing in the understory.

    You won't see any fruit until you plant another PawPaw from another patch nearby. They need that for fertilization and fruit production. You'll end up with a huge patch, with BIG trees in the understory, but no fruit. Plant one other PawPaw and you'll have the northern-most tropical fruit with its delicious custard-like qualities.

    don't be jealous, this wasn't on my land. this was at santee state park, we went camping there a couple weeks back. i'm pretty sure i don't have any of these on my own land.
