American Pawpaw (Asimina triloba) and fruit fly

    2 responses

Sam101 starts with ...
Hi All, does anyone have any experience with american pawpaw and Queensland fruit fly? Do they have any resistance? Also, what season does the pawpaw fruit? We only have fruit fly issues from about Nov-March, so if it is winter fruiting it might be ok.

Hi, my experience has been Pawpaw is safe,but with everything else, if the skin is thin enough for the lady fly to punch the eggs through, they wreck it.
eg. thin skinned lemons and avocados are fly food.

The papaya fruit fly (toxotrypana curvicauda gerstaecker) is known to attack asimina triloba fruit too.
Happy Gardening :-)
