Pawpaw Treelings benefit from the energy of sunlight,
but just don't do well with too much UV.
In their SECOND YEAR and older they are fine in full sun.

provide them with partial shade, as from nearby trees,
or a structure that also allows air circulation,
such as a tomato cage partly covered in cheesecloth or poly film.
We use 30% shade cloth in the nursery.

EXCESS UV will show up as brown, sunburned leaves.

ubular “tree shelters” are not recommended since
they produce humid conditions that promote fungus,
as do thick weeds growing close to young trees.
Pawpaw trees don't mind heat,
as long as they have plenty of water.



We call these little trees "New" because this is their first year from seed.

We call them "Superior" because they are grown from a selection of parent trees bearing good fruit.

These trees offer an excellent way to start with Pawpaws,
since they encompass a wide range of Pawpaw genetics.


  • All Pawpaw trees bear flowers which are both male and female, but they do not normally self~pollinate, so two genetically distinct trees are usually needed for fruit. Any two of these Superior Seedling Pawpaw Trees could cross-pollinate and produce fruit.

  • Pawpaw trees send up root sprouts, and in time a single tree may form an extensive patch of genetically identical trees. This may explain the non-fruiting Pawpaw patches which are sometimes found in the wild. Planting new Pawpaw trees in the patch may thus result in fruit bearing.

  • If grown in full sun, Pawpaw trees will have a broad, pyramidal shape.
  • They also grow in partial shade but will typically be taller and less productive.

Since they are shipped in their growing containers, they can be planted any time during the growing season.

Or, you may overwinter them where they will be cold, but not freezing, and plant out next Spring.
  • Pawpaw trees should only be planted while they are actively growing, not while dormant. This is because their roots also go dormant along with the tops, and are thus unable to heal from injuries to the roots.

  • Planting season for Pawpaw trees is from when they first start to leaf out in the Spring, until about two weeks before first frost in the Fall.

  • They like plenty of mulch and water, with good drainage, and a slightly acid soil high in organic matter.

  • Our Complete Growing Instructions are sent with each order.

  • Our trees are grown without synthetic pesticides, and we use all natural materials in the soil mix.
