Plants for Spring 2019 Shipping

NOTE: We’re ‘closed’ for shipping for Spring 2019. We’ll update our inventory for Fall 2019 shipping around Summer Solstice. Check back early July, or look for a newsletter update that we’re open again. Thanks for your patience. We’re a tiny nursery and are trying our best to keep up with the interest and excitement over these wonderful plants!

Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants in the early spring when the ground has thawed but the plants haven’t started actively growing. For our climate this is normally sometime between later March and mid-April… We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship!

TIP: Use the tags above to help filter our offerings by characteristic (ie. click on ‘fruit’ to find any fruit bearing plants we offer, etc.) As we add more and more it is a helpful way to find a plant to fit your goals…

Asimina Triloba
Pawpaw is an unbelievable tree and fruit for this region.  Imagine, if you will, a fruit the size of a mango, that smells like the most exotic tropical fruit.  Cutting it in half reveals an incredibly sweet, rich, custard-textured flesh that has a flavor profile somewhere between banana, papaya, pear, strawberry and jackfruit.  And you picked it from a tree on YOUR land in upstate NY.  Plants are magical, really!

This stunning tree grows in partial shade (it desires shade in its youth), and can tolerate Black Walnut trees with grace.  2 trees minimum for pollination, under 10 trees will probably require hand pollination since the carrion fly is it’s main pollinator.

Roughly 20’ tall and 15’ wide

Site Preference:
Shady to full sun… More shade when it’s younger.  Can tolerate wet feet on occasion.  Amazing choice for your challenging Black Walnut grove!

Zone 5

Two sizes currently available, 1st year seedling, tiny above ground but with a substantial tap root ready to lock in to its new home, and 2nd year young tree bigger and more developed.  1st year trees tend to catch up and exceed older trees, but some people want it bigger at purchase time.  Choice is yours.
