Our online store is temporarily closed. We hope to be able to update the online inventory as soon as possible, but there have been a lot of unanticipated life events this season that have complicated our time for computer crunching.

Our self-serve plant stand is now open! Please stop by and take a look at some of our inventory or come by one of the local markets we're attending this season!

Paw Paw (Asimina triloba)

This deciduous tree produces a sweet yellowish-green fruit from the same family as cherimoya and custard apples.  The fruit can be eaten raw or used in desserts or jams.

Pawpaw trees are a host plant for the larvae of the zebra swallowtail butterfly.  The leaves and bark contain a neurotoxin that protects the butterflies throughout their lifecycle by making them unpalatable to predators.
