Discover the Exquisite Taste of the Paw Paw

Why Paw Paw Trees?

The dynamic, unique, and undeniably sweet flavors of this best-kept secret will astound you as soon as you take your first bite. Often described as bearing the taste of a banana cream pie, the Paw Paw has overtones of vanilla custard and banana with a hint of citrus.

And the best part is…the Paw Paw Tree is a native tree, so it’s super easy to grow. For starters, its cold hardy, handling temperatures down to -10 degrees. Plus, it's pest, disease and deer resistant, bringing a tropical feel to any garden without effort.

Pollination Info

Paw Paw Tree Pollination

In order to get fruit, your paw paw tree will need another genetically different paw paw planted nearby.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Your tree prefers a partial sun location and needs no more than 4 or 5 hours of sunlight a day. Rich, deep, and well-draining soil are ideal conditions from planting new Paw Paws.

Dig a hole that’s just as deep as the root ball, and three times as wide. Place your tree in the hole and make sure that it's level with the surrounding ground and standing straight upwards a 90-degree angle. Backfill your hole and gently tamp the soil down to prevent air pockets from forming.

Once the planting process is complete, give your tree a long drink of water and mulch around the tree to conserve soil moisture.

2. Watering: Water when soil is dry at least 1 to 2 inches deep. Avoid letting the soil completely dry out.

3. Fertilizing: For optimal growth and fruit production, fertilize twice each year with a well-balanced fertilizer such as a 20-10-10.

4. Pruning: The best time to prune is late winter or early spring. Simply prune for shaping and remove any dead or damaged branches.

5. Harvesting: The Paw Paw will be ready to eat when it pulls off easily from the tree.

Paw Paw tree set plus a strawberry tree

I bought my pawpaw set together with a strawberry tree, which is an evergreen. The leafs on this one were dying and now have fallen off the tree, even though I planted-water them all right after I got them. I'm hoping the two pawpaw's will come back soon, as Summer is almost here. I've got some live pictures of them starting from the first day.

Paw Paws.

Trees arrived in good condition with good instructions. I had to look up information on how big trees get and how far apart to plant the 3 that I purchased

excited to be growing pawpaw's!

My next door neighbor grows pawpaws so I'm lucky to know how yummy they are! (And that they do well here in southern virginia!) I saw an interesting youtube video about the benefits of growing them close together, so I'm trying that idea. So far so good, we'll see what happens next spring!

Paw Paw Pollination Package

One tree is ok and the other one lost all of it's leave. I am hoping that is just because of the cold weather.



What you're seeing is completely normal for this time of year. Your tree will leaf out beautifully once the weather warms up in Spring but please reach out if you have any questions or concerns!
