PRE-ORDER HERE FOR 2025. (Unavailable for 2024.)
(If we end up having extra trees in 2024, we will offer those to 2025 orders in the order that we received orders.)
Pawpaw (Asimina triloba) has a 4 – 6 inch long tropical-looking fruit with a rich banana/mango flavor. Indeed, the pawpaw is the only temperate species in the Annonaceae family. When small, these trees are fragile and require a 2′ tree tube to get established. Two trees are needed for cross pollination.
WE DO *NOT* SHIP POTTED PLANTS.
Potted plants are available for **PICKUP ONLY** in May-June in Champaign, IL or Prairie du Chien, WI or Wapello, IA (select location at checkout). We will contact you to schedule a pickup time once your trees are ready.
Potted plants must be ordered in multiples of 12. Potted plants are grown in 4″x4″ square pots that are 9.5″ tall, specifically selected to develop a good root system on the plants. Potted plants are more expensive than bare root plants, but, for some growers, potted plants are easier to establish if you are new to planting trees.
We source our seed each fall from a range of the best pawpaw cultivars – all from Red Fern Farm. This ensures that the seedling trees you buy have the highest chance of producing high yields of top-notch fruit. Our nursery might be new on the block, but the orchards that we get our seed from are certainly not! These seedlings are open pollinated with grafted varieties such as ‘NC1’, ‘Pennsylvania Golden’, ‘Taytwo’, ‘Prolific’, ‘Shenandoah’, ‘Susquehanna’ and ‘Overlease’ as their mother tree.
