Description

This unique variety often begins bearing within two years after planting. Prolific Pawpaw Tree is early ripening and produces abundant crops of medium to large, sweet and tasty fruit.

Pawpaw is a truly magical fruit. The closest to a tropical fruit we can grow in Southern Ontario, where it is also a native plant. About the shape of a mango, with a similar skin, though the inner fruit is textured more like a banana. The taste is variously described as custard-like, banana-like, and mango-like and even sometimes like vanilla pudding. Pawpaw grows to various sizes, as tall as 25-30′, but the ones we sell are likely to be smaller than that, more like 12′-15′. The pawpaws we carry are varieties selected for their large and bountiful fruit harvests, and also for taste. They are grafted onto seed grown stock.
