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 Paws

Amazing experience. Beautiful 4’ tall paw paws arrived. They are deciduous so they arrived with no leaves and dormant. But with lots of buds. The Susquehanna had a little bit of damage to the top and some moss to the trunk. They immediately contacted me back and sent a new tree in two days. Did not charge me anything, not even for shipping. I’ve had bad luck with other online tree stores that don’t guarantee or insure their products. I definitely recommend FGT to any gardener.
