The native American Paw Paw tree is a cold hardy fruit tree that grows all the way northwards to Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The Paw Paw fruit is soft and tasty like banana custard and pleasingly aromatic like ripe bananas. Paw Paw trees are native trees to the Atlantic Coastal States. and in early fall giant clusters of paw paws mature on trees, some individual fruits weighing in weighing as much as two pounds each. As the paw paw tree matures its crop, a sweet fragrance of ripe bananas drifts from the tree. Paw Paw Tree flowers are pungent causing most pollination by flies and beetles. Paw Paw Trees require a second pollinator tree for fruit production and can be harvested around September to October. Early American pilgrims found the native paw paw trees growing everywhere in Pennsylvania, when they arrived, a delicious fruit heavily hanging from densely leafed trees, fruits weighing as much as 2 pounds each in huge clusters. Fruits like those seen and admired by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The summer ripening green fruit pods sometimes remain green when fully ripened but sometimes are transformed into faded yellow. Paw Paws hanging from trees emit a banana fragrance and taste sweet.

��Paw Paw Trees are rare American native trees that produce fruit with flavor and texture most similar to a banana. The Paw Paw tree is a native plant to the United States and was discovered by DeSoto who found Paw Paw trees growing by the Indians in the year 1541 in Mississippi. For fresh eating the paw paw is delicious and spicy, and it is very frequently baked into desserts and in some states it is brewed into paw paw beer. Very often cooks will substitute in recipes for banana pudding. The color of a ripe paw paw can vary from green to bright yellow. The fruit is sweet to taste when ripe, but if left on the paw paw tree during the Winter will turn brown or black in color. Sliced chilled Paw Paws became the favorite dessert of Thomas Jefferson, and President Jefferson and George Washington established their own Paw Paw orchards at Monticello and Mount Vernon, VA. The Louis and Clark explorers found Paw Paw trees growing throughout the Midwest United States and ate paw paws on their many explorations. This aroma attracts paw paw fruit collectors reliably every season to gather the delicious fruit for fresh eating right off the branches, or for taking to the kitchen to bake into memorable holiday custards.

Reviewer: Duane Holt from Tuscaloosa, AL United States  
Trees have hair like roots.  They have not yet shown any signs of sprouting.  I'm being very patient and keeping them watered.  We will see.

Reviewer: Matt Burkhalter from Smyrna, GA United States  
This came looking like a stick with no roots. I'm doing what I know to do and hoping it leafs out.

Reviewer: michael brown from warner robins, GA United States  
I planted the trees two days after I received them. I had trouble finding the dirt line and there did not seem to be any small roots on the main root area !  I hope every thing goes well, I love the taste of paw paw's !

Select Paw Paw April 20, 2014
Reviewer: Mindy from West Jefferson, OH United States  
I have never planted bare root plants before but it appears to be good quality.   I am looking forward to watching it mature from a "stick with roots" into a flowering fruit producing tree. Ordering was easy and all my questions were answered so I could make good purchase decisions. I never would have known to buy 2 for pollenating if they had not informed me I should.
