Collins Pawpaw Tree: A Slice of Native Delight

About the Fruit

Discover the Collins Pawpaw, a hidden gem of North American fruit trees, offering a tropical flair with its custard-like, rich and sweet flavor. Resembling a mango with its creamy texture, the Pawpaw is a treat for the palate with hints of banana, vanilla, and a touch of citrus. Perfect for smoothies, baked goods, or savored right off the branch, the Pawpaw is a delectable, versatile fruit that’s as nutritious as it is delicious.

What to Know About the Tree

The Collins Pawpaw tree is a deciduous wonder, showcasing broad, lush green leaves that turn golden-yellow in the fall. It’s a small to medium-sized tree, typically reaching 15 to 20 feet in height, perfect for a cozy garden nook. The Pawpaw tree also produces stunning, deep purple flowers in the spring, adding a splash of color and subtle beauty to any space. It’s not just an attractive tree; it is also low maintenance and naturally pest resistant, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners.

Harvest Season

Anticipation peaks in late summer to early fall when the Collins Pawpaw fruits mature. This harvest season marks a time of abundance, as trees laden with large, greenish-yellow fruits create a spectacular display. The Pawpaw is best when allowed to ripen on the tree, offering a fleeting but greatly rewarding harvest that’s eagerly awaited each year by aficionados and curious newcomers alike.

Fruitscaping™ with Paw Paw Trees

Invite the allure of the uncommon into your garden by Fruitscaping™ with our Paw Paw Trees. These native North American trees yield an extraordinary fruit that offers a custard-like texture and a tropical flavor, often compared to a blend of banana, mango, and melon.

Paw Paw trees are prized not only for their unique fruits but also for their striking beauty. With large, drooping leaves that provide excellent shade, and inconspicuous purple-brown flowers that bloom in spring, these trees add an element of mystery and enchantment to any landscape.

Growing best in rich, well-drained soil, Paw Paw trees prefer a slightly acidic pH. They love the sun but can tolerate some shade, making them a versatile addition to your Fruitscaping™ plans. Pair them with berry bushes, apple trees, or other native plants to create a diverse and sustainable fruit garden.

Remember that Paw Paws are pollinated by flies and beetles, not bees, so consider your overall garden ecosystem when planting. It’s also recommended to plant at least two Paw Paw trees for proper cross-pollination and fruit production.

Fruitscaping™ with Paw Paw Trees is an exciting adventure. From nurturing these unique trees to tasting the exotic fruits, each step in this gardening journey adds a layer of joy and fulfillment. With our Paw Paw Trees, you can enjoy both the beauty of nature and the delight of homegrown fruits.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
