  • 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 product
  • Pruning :

    You can prune them back to about a 3 feet 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.

Pawpaws fruit in 5 years
Oct 15, 2022  |  
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
I bought 3 of Burgess' variety of Pawpaws. It's true Pawpaws are easier to grow from seed but with these small trees that were shipped to me I now have an abundance of fruits for the last 3 years. The trick for planting, get them into the ground, be patient and plant them in a shady area that can be pruned to allow for the older trees to grow. The young trees need shelter from direct sun. I thought my seedlings were dead but you can check by scratching the outer layer of the stem and if it's green they are alive.
