Pawpaw Seeds (Asimina triloba) - Improved

**Also available in "Your Deluxe Orchard" collection!**

Pawpaw (Asimina triloba) Improved. Deciduous. Zones 5-8. Although threatened by deforestation, this luxurious native tree is making a big come back!

The Pawpaw grows to around 20 feet in height and bears scrumptious, 5 inch, seemingly exotic fruit. The only thing that comes close is the South American cherimoya, sometimes found at specialty produce markets. Pawpaw flesh is soft and creamy, but lighter than that of an avocado, and oh so sweet!

Pawpaw trees have a medium growth rate and may bear fruit as early as four years.

These seed were harvested from Pawpaw orchards and will yield considerably larger and more flavourful fruit than their wild counterparts.

*Germination of 60-80%* Pawpaw seeds need 90-120 days of cold stratification to germinate. Seeds must always remain moist! We recommend "Trackable Lettermail" if you order Pawpaw Seeds in the Winter. This can help to lessen their time spent in frigid temperature.

Each seed packet contains approximately 10 untreated Pawpaw Tree seeds. 

The plant will send down a long long taproot first. Once that is established it will work on growing above the ground. This can take 6 months or so.

Planting in the Fall doesn't necessarily mean September 21st. If average daytime temperatures are above 10, wait until it is consistantly colder. Some temperature fluctuations into a warmer zone is fine, but if its warm enough that the seeds think it is Spring, they may Sprout and then the Winter cold will kill them.
Pawpaws are an understory tree and the young trees need shade to survive and thrive. Full sun will kill baby pawpaw trees! Older trees do fine in the sun, so if you don't have a shady spot, you can build your saplings a simple shelter for their first couple years. We've build very minimal teepee-type structures out of evergreen bows, which has worked beautifully. 

This is a great, native fruit tree variety, adaptable to any home organic garden.
