If you have never had Pawpaw ice cream, you need to order Tallahatchie® Pawpaw Tree (Asimina triloba 'Tallahatchie') today! Kids love this delicious treat fresh from the tree, but even more so when it's churned into the creamiest ice cream!
Growing wild in the U.S. yet few people have heard of this tree, and fewer have actually tried it. The Tallahatchie® Pawpaw is your ticket to the special club!
Tallahatchie® bears large fruits compared to other Pawpaws. They have a fresh yellow-green peel with deep yellow flesh hidden inside.
These unique fruits grow in large clusters. They’re firm, full of tropically exquisite flavor with floral notes, a welcoming scent, and creamy, smooth texture.
Pies, pudding, and cookies all benefit from the tasty flesh, but make sure that you save enough to make ice cream, because this variety is one of the best for that chilly yet tasty dessert.
Tallahatchie® gives you and your pollinators an abundance of red-violet to burgundy blossoms, hanging from branches like bells. Hummingbirds and butterflies adore them!
The deep-green summer foliage creates a dense canopy for cooling shade, but when autumn arrives, they give way to dandelion-yellow fall foliage! A dual-purpose tree, renowned for its sweet fruit and striking specimen form.
Requiring a pollination partner, so plant groups or hedgerows for privacy with other Pawpaw varieties! Or try cross-pollinating your tree by hand with a paintbrush.
Plant Tallahatchie® in full sun for the best yield, but give it some shade from the afternoon sun during its first summer. The Pawpaw naturally grows as an understory of Eastern forests. Heat and cold hardy in USDA zones 5 -9.
Try to find a well-drained spot with moist, slightly acidic soil, and your Tallahatchie® Pawpaw will repay your kindness with armloads of fruit.
Order Tallahatchie® Pawpaw Tree from NatureHills.com and start shopping for ice cream makers! You’ll be making ice cream for friends and family until you run out of fruit!
