Full Answer

Pawpaw patches can typically be found in fertile, well-draining soil, usually in the eastern United States. The foliage gives the trees tropical flair, with the deep green, oblong leaves growing as long as 12 inches.

Pawpaw trees produce America's largest native fruit. Each fruit weighs between 5 and 16 ounces, with an appearance similar to a mango. Pawpaw fruit has soft flesh with a texture similar to custard.
