Native to Eastern North America, the pawpaw is a small tree that produces hanging clusters of delicious oval shaped fruit that have a banana or vanilla custard like flavour. With its large drooping leaves and delicate purple flowers in spring, the pawpaw tree has great ornamental appeal. Paw paws also have few pest or disease problems. Plant in well drained soil and protect from strong winds and grass competition for the first two years.
