Deciduous tree with a conical shape maturing at 12-20 feet tall. Native to the woodlands of eastern US. Cold hardy to -25 degrees F.

Avoid heavy, wet, alkaline soil. Young plants are sensitive to full sun. Pawpaws are the largest edible fruit native to America. Individual fruits weigh 5 to 16 ounces.        *Deer Resistant*
