Asimina species

Common Name(s): Pawpaw

Native to Florida

There are eight native species of pawpaws in Florida (Wunderlin, 2003). They are frequent from sandhills to flatwoods, scrubs to wet hammocks. Pawpaws are generally located in FL and GA, but the parviflora species extends to the rest of the southeastern states, and triloba covers the majority of the eastern states and a segment of Canada (Kartesz, 1999).
