Out of Season Pawpaw

Pawpaw

Fresh Banana Custard Flavor!


Growing 15-30 ft. tall, pawpaws make attractive specimen trees with a pyramidal shape and big, tropical-looking leaves that put on a spectacular golden show in the fall. The 3- to 5-in. fruits will darken in the late summer—that's when the luscious flavor is at its peak! Potted plant. Zones 5-9.

  • Depth: Plant at the same depth it is in the pot.
  • Spread: 15 - 25 feet.
  • Light Required: Full sun.
  • Pollinator: Plant 2 - 3 plants to ensure pollination. Pawpaw trees are not self fertile. Pollen must be transferred to the female flowers of a different Pawpaw tree. The more trees that are planted in a grouping the better pollination, resulting in better fruit produ
  • Color: Purple flowers.
  • Foliage: Deep green, drooping, oval leaves, 4 x 12 inches.
  • Blooms: Spring.
  • Fruit: Greenish-yellow, almost black when ripe.
  • Zone: 5 - 9 (-10° F.).
  • Form: Small deciduous tree, rounded.
  • Flower Form: Tulip-shaped; fragrant.
  • Soil Requirements: Rich, moist, well-drained, organic, slightly acidic soil. pH of 5.5 - 7.0.
  • Growth Rate: Medium to fast growth rate. Approximately 2 feet per year.
  • Pruning: You can prune them back to about a meter high and they will then throw several new branches from below the cut. Each branch will bear fruit and, provided that you fertilize the tree well, the fruit will be of a good size. You can repeat the pruning on each of the branches once they again become too tall to harvest easily.
  • Comments: Growing 15-30 feet tall, pawpaws make attractive specimen trees with a pyramidal shape and big, tropical-looking leaves that put on a spectacular golden show in the fall. The 3-5 inch fruits will darken in late summer-thats when the luscious flavor is at its peak! Uncommon despite its native status, ripe pawpaws have a short shelf life, making them difficult to sell.
