Azimina

Azimina (Nebraska banana, Mexican banana, Asimina, banana tree, Pawpaw, Pau Pau) is originally from North America, more precisely from the territory of the southern US states. But this amazing, seemingly thermophilic plant is able to withstand severe colds up to −30 Celsius! And thanks to such resistance, one out of ten species – “Three-bladed Asimine” – is grown by amateur gardeners in our country.

The fruits are collected in inflorescences up to 8 pieces, they have an oblong oval shape and reach up to 15 cm in length and up to 7 cm in diameter. The thin skin of the fetus, as it ripens, changes color from greenish (in unripe) to yellowish and even dark brown. The pulp is juicy, light sweet and very fragrant; a comparison with custard is often found. Inside, up to 10 large flat bones are hidden. The disadvantage of pawpaw is the poor preservation of the collected fruits, so most often they are eaten freshly picked or various jams are prepared.

Azimina is rich in amino acids and trace elements, sucrose, vitamins A, C. The fruits do an excellent job of normalizing the gastrointestinal tract and strengthen the immune system.
