Overleese Pawpaw Tree: Nature’s Luscious Secret

About the Fruit

The Overleese Pawpaw is a hidden gem among fruit connoisseurs, offering a rich and creamy texture reminiscent of tropical islands. This North American native fruit is a delectable blend of banana, mango, and melon flavors, making it a unique addition to any palate. Its custard-like flesh is perfect for smoothies, baking, or simply enjoying fresh from the tree. The Overleese variety is known for its larger, more consistent fruit size and sweeter taste, elevating it as a must-try for any exotic fruit lover.

What to Know About the Tree

The Overleese Pawpaw Tree is a deciduous wonder, featuring broad, lush green leaves that turn a striking yellow in the fall. This tree not only adds a tropical aesthetic to any landscape but is also hardy and adaptive. It typically grows to a manageable height of 15-25 feet, making it suitable for diverse garden sizes. The Overleese Pawpaw is a low-maintenance tree, requiring minimal care once established and is naturally resistant to many pests and diseases.

Harvest Season

Anticipation for the Overleese Pawpaw’s harvest builds as the summer wanes, with peak ripeness occurring in the late summer to early fall. The arrival of the harvest season is heralded by the appearance of oblong, green fruits that slowly turn to a golden brown as they mature, ready for picking. This bountiful period not only offers a delicious harvest but also an enchanting visual display in your garden.

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.
