This fruit can reach one pound and the tree can grow to 25 feet. The benefits of the Pawpaw fruit is that it is rich in Vitamin C, three times more than an apple and contains as much potassium as a banana. It also contains magnesium and iron. Another advantage is it is very hard to find in open markets. Check on the soil requirements before starting your plant.
