Paw paws have long, pear-shaped leaves with pointed tips and fine, white hairs on top and rusty-colored hairs on the bottom. The leaves turn yellow in autumn. Small, maroon flowers with velvety petals bloom in April to May. Yellowish-green, mango-like fruits grow in September to October. The paw paw grows to 35 feet tall. (Source: Chesapeake Bay Program)
