 Have you heard of the Pawpaw, Asimina triloba? It’s the largest native North American fruit, and it has a tropical flavor and custardy texture. The PawPaw tree has been nearly forgotten for many decades due to the short time span each year they are ripe, they were never able to be successful in commercially being transported and sold. There is even a song about pawpaws you can look up “way down yonder in the PawPaw patch”

It is best to plant at least TWO unrelated pawpaw trees to ensure pollination of your pawpaw fruit in the future. You can buy some like these natural seedlings as well as plant some grafted versions to ensure greater chances of pollination. These pawpaws are tough, and grown from seed right here in Missouri! Look no further, we will get you hooked up with some PawPaw trees in no time! The more you are able to plant, the higher your chances of better pollination you have.

All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.

Deliveries to WA, UT, ID, NV, MT, ND, and SD MUST be shipped Bareroot.

Great First Purchase

This was my first time buying through Weaver F. Farms and I was thoroughly impressed with the delivery condition, much better than any other plant deliveries and I’m not complaining about those either!
The paw paw is doing great with all of it’s original growth looking healthy! I’m very excited for the future of this tree!

Thank you very much! We appreciate you! Thank you for supporting our small family business!

Good customer service, plants arrived quickly

Planted arrived quickly, and in good shape! I got three bare root trees, and planted them ASAP, and after watering them, they perked right back up! I'm looking forward to seeing how they grow! The shop on Etsy answered my questions and I'll definitely buy again.

Thank you very much! We appreciate you!
