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.
