More about Asimina triloba 'Wells Grafted':

x-small;">Nutritious as well as delicious, the greenish yellow 3" to 6" Pawpaw fruit is high in protein and a good source of vitamins and minerals. Ornamental tree has unusual dark purple flowers that appear before the large tropical looking foliage. Pawpaws can be grown in shade or sun, however in cooler regions we recommend choosing a warm, sunny location for best fruit ripening.

Paw Paws are valuable food for raccoons, opossums and other mammals. Pawpaw leaves are the larval food source for the Zebra Swallowtail butterfly.

Wells Grafted Pawpaw Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Paw Paws prefer a fertile, loamy soil. Open grown, the tree will become pyramidal. We recommend planting two unrelated individuals to insure fruit-set.
