Description

The flowers are maroon and bloom is in Spring. Paw Paws need a fertile, loamy soil to survive and if open grown, will become pyramidal. Better to plant two unrelated individuals to insure fruit-set. Paw Paws are valuable food for raccoons, opossums and other mammals. Pawpaw leaves are the larval food source for the Zebra Swallowtail butterfly.
