Asimina parviflora, the smallflower pawpaw or dwarf papaw, is a shrub or small tree in the custard apple family.

Distribution[edit]

It is native to the Southeastern United States, where it is found from Texas to Virginia. It is found most often in sandy areas, alluvial areas, and dry woods.[1]

Description[edit]

Asimina parviflora has maroon, fleshy flowers in the spring. It produces an edible fruit, although the fruit is smaller than of its relative Asimina triloba, the Paw Paw tree.[2]
