Paw Paw (Asimina Triloba)

$5.61

Pawpaw is found throughout all of Ohio and most of the Eastern United States except for New England and much of Florida. It is a native understory or woodland edge tree, often found in moist places such as the bottoms of ravines, steep hillsides, and creek banks.

  • Includes 3 Seedlings per order
  • Plant Type: Tree
  • Mature Height: 25 ft.
  • Mature Spread: 15 ft.
  • Shape: Densely Pyramidal
  • Soil Type: Moist, Well-Drained, Deep, Rich
  • Sunlight Requirements: Partial to Full Sun
  • Zones: 5-8

In youth, it requires shady sites to become established, as intense sunlight will harm the leaves of young trees. After several years, saplings can grow in partial sun to full sun, where the heaviest fruit crops will be realized and only if a genetically different strain of Paw Paw is planted nearby, for cross-pollination of the perfect flowers. Trees grown from separate seed sources or transplanted from different sites will eventually yield fruits, but those within a single colony will not, as they are all clones that cannot cross-pollinate and yield fruits.

**Available only for local pick up at the Duke Lundgard Building, Miami County Fairgrounds – April 5th (2-6pm) or April 6th (8am-6pm).**
