This tree grows in a corner of an alfalfa field and into my backyard. Can’t identify right off the bat. Green fruit has a sharp pungent odor at this stage when cut open.

    Definitely not a Paw Paw. Paw Paws have simple leaves not compound. Not Black Walnut either, But close……. I would guess at an English Walnut. Very healthy looking nuts and foliage on your tree! We have Paw Paws (we call them Michigan Bananas)here in NorthCentral Ohio. We also have Black Walnuts. We have very few English Walnuts here. You shall know in the Autumn!

    I have several Black Walnut trees. Your tree definitely appears to be a Paw Paw.

    I kept doing research on this tree and I think it is a Common (or Black) Walnut. I do find walnut shells in my backyard from time to time and it is a more likely choice than the non-native Paw Paw. Thsnks for your response.

    Looks like Paw Paw (Asimina Triloba), but it shouldn’t be native there — somebody must have planted it at some time… Fruit quality varies from individual to individual, but the best ones are very tasty, something like a combination of banana and pineapple.
