Get started growing your very own Paw Paw tree! These seedlings have been carefully grown on our farm to ensure they will work for you.

These trees will be 10+ inches tall.

Paw Paw seedlings are not a variety. They have not been grafted with a known variety. Seedling trees tend to be more vigorous and on average they will live longer. What seedlings make up for in vigor and life span, they lack in consistency. Every seedling is genetically different. This means each tree will grow to have it’s own characteristics. This is especially important in regards to fruit quality. A seedling may grow to have superior fruits or may grow to have average fruits. Because of this lack of consistency, seedling trees are much cheaper then their grafted counter parts.

Seedling trees are best suited for the grower on a budget or the adventurous grower looking for a potentially new superior fruiting tree.

Pawpaws (Asimina triloba) are native to the eastern half of North America. The grow as far north as Michigan and Ontario and as far south as southern Florida. They are adaptable and can be found growing outside of their native range in places like the west coast of North America as well as parts of Europe. Although they are native to a temperate climate, they are the only member of their plant family (Annonaceae) that are cold hardy. As its relatives are all tropical, the pawpaw brings a taste of the tropics to the more northern latitudes. The tree looks like a tropical plant which makes it a beautiful specimen for the back yard landscape and the fruit has a tropical flavor as well. With hints of banana, pineapple and mango with the texture of a ripe avocado. Pawpaw fruit isn’t just delicious, it is highly nutritious as well, being high in protein, vitamins and minerals. The fruit of named varieties can weigh up to a pound and be 6 or more inches long. For a tree, pawpaw is small. The tree will slowly reach a mature size of 20’x20’ which makes it a great addition to any back yard space. Pawpaw is suitable for even the most inexperienced growers as it is highly pest and disease resistant when planted in its native range.
