 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.

i got mine at a low cost. Review by Brian
I got two 4 to 5 foot trees for 59 a piece. I planted them a few months ago. Still waiting for the leaves. I have never had paw paws so I'm looking forward to tryng them when the bare fruit in a couple years.
Very unique but squirrels love them! Review by Cindy198
I think they call it paw paw because every animals paws will try to get to the fruit! I have 2 pecan trees in my front yard & 2 paw paw in my back yard. The neighborhood squirrels have a friggin feast every fall. The Paw Paw are a bit smaller & I've seen paw prints from deer around the Paw Paw as well. I don't mind sharing but it would be nice if they left me something :)
gorgeous! Review by inga
It was my birthday gift. Now my tree is 6 years old. Such an elegant tree! Wish I can send you photo of my paw-paw in October - Golden princes! Great tree for any garden. We have country house in PA (zone 5). For last 3-4 years having plenty of fruits. No need to cover our tree on very cold winter.
Great tree Review by Pappy
They're hard to find & Nature Hills sold out 2 years ago. I had to wait til 2013 to get a Paw Paw. It's doing great. Such a unique tree. I highly recommend getting a paw paw tree from Nature Hills.
Love This! Review by Unique Gardener
I didn't really know much about the Paw Paws but I heard about them and really wanted one. This is such a unique and beautiful tree. People ask about it all the time.
