Paw Paw Trees - SeedlingAsimina triloba
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-9
The Paw Paw is a great choice if you are looking to add a dash of the tropics to your yard or garden area. The leaves of the Paw Paw are large and drooping with a tropical look to them. In April and May the small tree produces beautiful large flowers before producing medium-sized, edible fruit. The fruit has an unusual taste, somewhat like a mix of banana, pineapple, and mango. The tree is smallish, growing to only about 15-20 feet high and 20 feet wide. It has a rounded, upward growth habit that works well for group planting. The Paw Paw prefers full sun to partial shade and loose soil. It is hardy in Zones 5-9 and requires more than one tree in order to pollinate and produce fruit.
Our Paw Paw trees are grown from seedlings, they are not grafted. Paw Paw trees grown from seeds normally begin flowering and fruiting in 4-8 years, depending on location and the care the tree receives.
USDA ZONES: Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
I planted tress and they died
Plants came in excellent condition. They looked great. Roots where in great shape.
I ordered a pawpaw tree, I needed a replacement for 1 I ordered from a different company that only shipped during the spring. Plant Me Green ships year round and I wish I have found them 1st the tree I got was not bareroot. I was in a pot and it looks great night height and full of leaves, It is doing wonderful. You will not be sorry ordering from them.
I received a nice size healthy tree, well packaged for shipment. I would order again.
