Easy in sun or shade, and so heavy yielding!

It may look tropical, but Paw-Paw is actually cold hardy to -25 degrees F.
Related to the tropical Cherimoya (Custard Apple), Paw-Paw is actually a native U.S. plant that thrives in sun or shade and yields big loads of fragrant, succulent fruit! If you've ever wondered just what a "paw-paw patch" really looked like, grow this super-easy fruit and find out!

With huge leaves that might look more at home in the jungle, this Eastern U.S. plant is actually hardy to -25? F! In the wild it is a forest understory tree, but it also tolerates full sun. In fact, this adaptable plant will probably thrive just about anywhere within its hardiness range, given adequate drainage and water!

The fruits, weighing up to a pound each, are rich, sweet, and custard-like, with hints of banana and vanilla. Expect generous yields on trees 15 to 30 feet tall. Plant at least two for pollination. Zones 4-9.

I've not ordered any as I don't need to as I've many in the woods. They are marvelous and delicious. All should order at least 2-3 for cross-pollination.
