Grafted Pawpaw Trees

Our Grafted Pawpaw Trees are not available at this time.
Grafted Pawpaw trees are clones of named cultivars, (varieties), which have been selected for superior traits. Over the years, amateur fruit explorers as well as professional fruit breeders have selected outstanding Pawpaw trees for backyard growing as well as for orchards.
As with fruit trees in general, the scion on grafted Pawpaw trees is from a mature tree. Thus, grafted trees are likely to bear a year or so sooner than seedlings.

Grafted trees do not always perform the same as the parent tree, due to local conditions, rootstock differences, and other factors.

At least two genetically different Pawpaw trees are usually required for cross~pollination and fruit production. Self~pollinating Pawpaw trees have been reported, but are the exception.

Any two of our
Superior Pawpaw Trees
will cross~pollinate. Please consider ordering some.
