Ussurian Pear (Siberian) vs Pawpaw

Pyrus ussuriensis

Asimina triloba

NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Ussurian Pear (Siberian)
Pawpaw

Ussurian Pear (aka Manchurian or Siberian Pear) is the most cold hardy of all pear species.

This self-pollinating pear bears white flowers in the spring and has good fall colour, making it an exceptional ornamental addition to any garden. However, it has a tendency to branch quite low and is often used in shelterbelts and hedges too.

It is primarily grown for its attractive flowers and pollination of other pear varieties, or as cold hardy rootstock, and is also an excellent addition to any shelterbelt.

The Pawpaw fruits are edible and delicious with a banana-mango flavour, and can be eaten fresh or enjoyed in ice cream or baking. Wildlife are also known to enjoy the fruit. It is a small understory tree or large shrub found in wooded slopes, ravines and along streams. Often spreads by root suckering to form thickets. Cup shaped purple flowers form in the spring followed by yellow-green oblong fruits which turn a dark brown once mature.

Add Pawpaw to your rain garden today to enjoy the ornamental and tasty value this shrub has to offer.
