Asimina triloba (Pawpaw) germplasm in Romania

Published in Scientific Papers. Series B. Horticulture, Vol. LVI
Written by Florin STĂNICĂ

In Romania the first reports on Asimina triloba came from a small village in Transylvania, north-western part of the country. At the beginning of the 20th Century, a Romanian immigrant brought from USA, some pawpaw seeds and from them few uncommon fruit bearing plants have been obtained. From the village of Pianu Nou, Alba County, some seedlings were sent to a private garden in Geoagiu, Hunedoara County and for nearly one hundred years, the specie remained unknown for the Romanian fruit scientists. It was around 2000, when the descendents of the first pawpaw plants introduced in Romania were planted in the Bucharest Faculty of Horticulture fields to be tested. Together with those, some other 10 pawpaw varieties and 3 hybrids were introduced from Italy in a small collection. The paper presents the characterization of the first Romanian found pawpaw genotype and of the other genotypes existing in Romania.
