Common Paw Paw


Introducing Platt Hill Nursery’s Common Paw Paw tree! This unique small spreading tree is sure to turn heads in your garden! Not only is it a striking backdrop for year-round beauty and a host for the zebra swallowtail butterfly, but it also produces delicious edible fruit similar in taste to a banana/pear with a custard consistency. The sweet, rich, high in vitamins fruit is perfect for fresh eating, cooking, preserves, and even wine-making. Plus, it features unusual lightly-scented nodding purple flowers from mid to late spring and dark green deciduous foliage that turns an outstanding lemon yellow in the fall.

Enjoy the bounty of the Common Paw Paw tree with Platt Hill Nursery today!
