Pawpaw Asimina triloba

The pawpaw is a native fruit tree found in both bottom-land and hilly upland habitat, with large, simple leaves and large fruits. The paw paw is the largest edible fruit indigenous to the United States.

Pawpaws have a unique growth habit, with striking landscape-quality silhouette. Roots, bark, and leaves have a curious "smoky" fragrance.

We grow seedling trees from selected variety parents.  Every pawpaw tree may bear fruit, but you must have two or more trees for pollination.

Known for it's quercetin content in fruit and bark, with potential herbal uses.

We ship TWO YEAR OLD bare root trees.  Transplanted pawpaws benefit from being well watered when planted.
