Reproductive development in pawpaw

While the pawpaw (Asimina triloba) is one of few native North American fruit trees, not much is known about its flower and fruit development. Juan Losada (Arboretum Fellow), Iñaki Hormaza, and Jorge Lora (Jewett Prize Recipient) examined its development in American Journal of Botany. Complementing this work, the genome of Asimina triloba 12708*A is being sequenced with support from an Arboretum Sequencing Award. abstract »
