You're invited: Fruit & Nut pre-order pick up weekend will be April 27 & 28, 2024 (from 10 - 2 pm)!
Also known as American Custard Apple, Hillbilly Mango or (recently) Hipster Banana. This native tree grows up to 25-30 feet and bears much sought after yellow-green skinned fruit tasting like a banana, pineapple and mango custard. Mature pawpaw trees will deliver diverse fruit size and flavors, with the random promise of discovering you have the world’s best Pawpaw in your backyard. Slow to come into bearing, and with odd smelling flowers that are pollinated by beetles and maybe carrion flies! Quite lovely as a landscape tree. Fruition’s Pawpaw seedlings are 1 – 2 feet tall. For good pollination, we recommend planting 2 seedlings close together to form a Pawpaw patch.
