Pawpaws are my absolute favorite fruit! The trees are shade tolerant with long, beautiful, tropical-looking leaves. The flowers are a deep burgundy color and are pollinated by flies rather than bees, so planting a thicket of 3 or more will lead to better fruit production. The fruit ripens in autumn and is best left to naturally fall off the tree for maximum flavor. Pawpaw fruit tastes like a mix of mostly mango with some banana and pineapple flavors and a creamy custard texture. It is always hard to believe a tree that can handle -25 degrees produces such a tropical tasting fruit. Trees ship as bare root plants, 6-12" in height with strong root systems.
