 Ornamental Tree with Delicious Fruit


The Paw Paw is an ornamental, fruit-bearing tree.  It’s sure to turn heads if planted near your street or by the front entrance of your home.  


Planting a Paw Paw is a great way to bring a bit of tropical allure to your yard without concerns about harsh weather.  The Paw Paw can tolerate cold temperatures, even as low as -25F.  


Of course it’s most popular feature is the fruit it produces in the fall. 


You’ll adore the short stubby-banana shape and creamy consistency of the custard-like fruit.  The unique taste must be tried to be truly appreciated.  People describe it as a banana-like flavor with melon, vanilla or even pineapple accents. 


As if the tropical look and delicious fruit isn’t enough, in the spring your Paw Paw will reward you with the most delightful 1-inch bell-shaped flowers.  These deep-purple gems start to appear before your Paw Paw leafs out, so your view of their exquisite charm won’t be obscured.   


In the fall the leaves your Paw Paw will gift you with yet another thrill when its leaves brighten your autumn landscape with their yellow brilliance.  


The Paw Paw is a tropical-looking hardy tree with a lot to offer. You just can’t go wrong planting the incredible Paw Paw tree.
