The Pawpaw grows in zones 5-9.

With its large, drooping leaves and unique purple flowers, the pawpaw tree is a North American native that will add a bit of the tropical look to your backyard.  The cup-shaped flowers also give way to oblong edible fruit that is sweet, tasting like a mix of bananas, pineapples, and mangos.

  • Produces cup-shaped purple flowers from April to May

  • Yields oblong yellow-green fruit that matures to a dark brown in autumn

  • Features 6"–12" leaves that provide yellow fall color

  • Requires two trees to pollinate and produce fruit 

  • Will begin flowering and fruiting within 4–8 years, as these trees are grown from seeds

  • Will be delivered in a 4" pot or 1-gallon pot at a height of 1 1/2' - 3 1/2'
