Pawpaw (Asimina triloba) potted tree seedling, organic

$15.00$40.00

Family: Anonaceae

Hardy to Zones 5 to 8

Perennial deciduous tree growing to about 20 feet tall.  These produce America’s largest edible fruit, the banana-like pawpaw, looking like an escape from the tropics. Tasting like banana custard, the fruit is a sedative and laxative medicine. Tree prefers part shade and a moist, slightly acidic forest soil. Our trees are seedlings grown from Kentucky State improved variety.  These are seedlings from this year.

Potted plant, certified organically grown

    Roughly how long will these take before fruit production? And I assume they should be bought in pairs for pollination? (Or do they need another type of pawpaw to pollinate?)

      Hi Marie,
      It takes 4 to 8 years for a seedling to grow large enough to produce fruit. Yes. Pawpaws are generally self-incompatible, so you need two trees for cross-pollination. Plant at least two seedlings.

      What is the name of the variety? I just ordered some and I’ll be attempting to grow them in Zone 4 in Minnesota

      No, these are seedgrown, you do not need a different variety, if you plant more than one of them they will cross-pollinate and fruit. r
