(aka Indian banana)
This small tropical-like tree is a unique and wonderful addition to landscapes. Not only can delicious fruits be harvested, but it is the one and only host plant for the gorgeous Zebra Swallowtail. Pawpaws can grow up to 30 feet but can easily be pruned each year to maintain a much smaller size. They are for the most part, pest resistant. They are a pleasure to have in your yard.
