Like Growing Dessert in Your Backyard

Why American Paw Paw Trees?

Sweet and aromatic fruit that tastes like Boston Cream Pie? Not only is this fruit amazingly delicious...but you can now get it in your own backyard. In addition to its delectable fruit, it delivers lush green leaves with tropical appeal and vibrant blooms.

And through it all, it's unbelievably strong. The American Paw Paw is hardy down to an amazing -10 degrees, offering tropical treasures in even the chilliest climates. So, no matter where you live, you can bring the tropics home.

Thick leaves, rich and green in color, flood this mid-sized tree. The canopy is umbrella-shaped, with no lower limbs, giving it a palm-like feel. The Paw Paw gives you the best of both worlds, with large green fruit clinging to a thick, long trunk for unparalleled exotic harvests.

And wait until you taste it. It resembles a cross between a banana and a mango but tastes like Boston Cream Pie! Seriously...sweet, creamy and fragrant, there's so much rich flavor in the Paw Paw fruit it's been described as a soft blend of banana, melon, vanilla, and pineapple all in one.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Do you know of any other fruit in the world that combines all these terrific flavors with a wonderfully soft texture? We don't. That's why it's so difficult to find the Paw Paw at big-box garden stores or local garden centers.

But when you order your Paw Paw from Fast Growing Trees, you get it all: the promise of delicious tropical harvests as soon as the first few seasons, stunning good looks, and an intact, healthy root system.

Most fruit trees from chain retailers come bare-root, leaving up to 90% of their roots behind when you transplant into your landscape.

Your American Paw Paw from Fast Growing Trees is delivered right to your door, developed roots and better branching intact, grown in nutrient-rich soil for months ahead of shipping.

With all of the taste and health benefits, the Paw Paw lets you have your dessert and eat it too! But don't wait...get your own American Paw Paw Tree today!

    Even bigger and heartier than I was hoping

    After years of waiting I finally pulled the trigger on two Paw Paw trees! They arrived within 2 days of the shipping notification during a BRUTAL heatwave, but I met them at the door and got them right into a shaded kiddie pool to soak for 24 hours and I'm optimistic about their health. One looks to be in perfect condition, while the other showed up very droopy and is getting a little worse, though I'm not worried about its recovery. Slightly droopy or not, these are lovely native trees that I can't find at local nurseries and I'm thankful to have had them delivered right to my door step.
