Pawpaw

Height: 25-30' Width: 20-25'

Pawpaw grows in thickets in the forest understory and along woodland edges. It is the native plant that produces the largest edible fruit in North America. Pawpaw prefers fertile, moist soil and will tolerate wet soil. It can be grown in sun or shade, exhibiting dense growth in sun and open growth in shade. Pawpaw grows quickly if mulched and watered during droughts; it is drought-sensitive when grown in sun. Pawpaw blooms in spring before leaf out. The tropical looking foliage can be up to a foot long and turns butter yellow in fall. Fruit is a 3- to 5-inch-long, green when young then becomes greenish-yellow when ripe in October or November. Ripe fruit has a flesh like custard and tastes a lot like bananas. 

*cross pollination is required for fruit
