Way Down Yonder in the Paw Paw Patch

Did you grow up singing that song about pawpaws?

Did you know what they were back then? Are you still unsure now? Most of us are.

Believe it or not, the paw is the most significant fruit from North America. How can a fruit so big still be so unknown?

Most supermarkets don't carry them. Neither do most neighborhood nurseries. Also known as Michigan Banana or Custard Fruit, it tastes like a combination of banana and papaya. It has high protein for fruit, making it a delicious and nutritious addition to your fruit bowl. A good tree for first-timers to try out has few pests and does not grow so big to get overwhelming. Check out pawpaws in our tree nursery.

Pawpaw Tree - TN Nursery

Pawpaw Tree

The Pawpaw tree is a small deciduous tree with large, tropical-looking leaves and greenish-brown, banana-like fruits, known for its unique flavor and suitability to North American temperate regions. It is one of our hottest sellers because of its native fruiting abilities, distinctive appearance, contributions to biodiversity, potential for edible fruit, ability to create natural habitats, and role in promoting ecological balance, which makes it a valuable addition to outdoor spaces. One of the key advantages of using it in landscaping is its distinctive appearance. Our pawpaw trees are already pollinated when shipped and we guarantee that they will bear fruit at maturity. Make Your Landscape Stand Out With the Pawpaw Tree Pawpaw trees are a popular choice, and property owners are looking for medium-sized plants with an unusual look. They have a slim, grayish-brown trunk topped by thick clusters of leaves. Its crown is usually higher than it is wide, and it can be slightly triangular in shape. They can reach up to 50 feet high. Their pleasantly compact shape makes them look excellent when planted as a focal point in a lawn. Landscapers also like to plant them in bunches or rows to create accent points near driveways, sidewalks, or other landscape features.  Fruits Full of Antioxidants Make This Tree So Popular One of the most distinctive traits of this plant is its gorgeous leaves. Each branch is draped in large leaves that gracefully droop downwards. The leaves are a smooth oval shape with a slight flare towards the tip, and they are rich, emerald green for most of the year. In early fall, long before other plants start to change color, these leaves turn a rich golden-yellow color that adds plenty of appeal to your landscape.  Appealing Flowers in Spring Starting in mid-spring, this plant begins to produce some very eye-catching blossoms. The flowers of this plant are a rich, purplish-red color. The deep burgundy flowers have a set of three small petals nestled inside of a set of three larger petals. The flowers often appear before the plant regains the leaves it lost in winter, so the effect of the deep purple blooms on bare branches is quite striking. TN Nursery Offers These Rare Stunning Trees During the summer and fall months, this plant begins to produce some very interesting fruit. These fruits start out around two inches wide and gradually grow to six inches. They're an elongated, oval shape with a green, matte peel. The fruits' colors can include subtle variations of yellow, brown, orange, and green, so they add a lot of stunning features to the plant. The contrast between the darker leaves and the paler clusters of fruit ensures that this plant looks especially interesting and exciting.
