Rappahannock® Pawpaw, with foot-long leaves that droop lazily from the branches, will give your garden a laid-back tropical vibe. Plant it where you’ll be able to appreciate its bold presence throughout the growing season—especially in fall, when the foliage turns the color of ripe pineapple. If you plant more than one tree, you may also be rewarded with the gift of delectable fruits, which have a tropical flair as well. The uncommon pawpaw fruit contains a sweet, creamy yellow flesh that’s often compared to banana custard in flavor about the size of a potato.
