Plant Details: Pawpaw
5 - 9
These seedling are from a selected tree that has huge fruit. The fruit are up to 3/4 of a pound each. One well-pollinated small tree can produce 50 lbs or more. 'N
Balls' needs a pollinator as well as moist rich soil to be most productive. It should not be planted in dry locations. In early spring the pawpaw is covered with large maroon flowers. It is a host plant for the Zebra Swallowtail butterfly. Pawpaw make an excellent small ornamental tree if you have the moist location for it. Large fruit, butterfly host' tropical foliage' and yellow fall color makes this variety an all around winner.
We are currently out of this selection of this large fruited PawPaw but may have divisions available this winter of another large fruited un-named selection.
