Vasconcellea pubescens syn. Carica pubescens
Member $15.95
Create a tropical look in your garden with this easy-to-grow exotic. A cool climate paw paw that can take light frosts and produces ribbed fruit that turn yellow when ripe. Scoop out and eat the pulpy seeds just like passionfruit. The flowers and ripening fruit are fragrant and the deeply lobed leaves to 60cm across make this paw paw as ornamental as it is delicious. Plants can be male female or hermaphrodite so planting a few planted together not only looks exotic, but will ensure fruit.
