At MyPalmShop , we have a unique selection of paw paw trees, a remarkable tree that can transform any garden into a natural paradise. These trees are known for their beautiful flowers and delicious fruit. Discover our large range and find the perfect paw paw tree for your garden.

Characteristics of the pawpaw tree

One of the characteristics of the paw paw tree, also known as Asimina triloba, is that they grow slowly, with larger trees growing about 20 cm per year. It reaches a height of between 6-8 metres. This tree can be kept at any heigh by pruning, which can be done in winter as well. This makes a paw paw tree suitable for many different sizes and styles of gardens.

Flowering of paw paw trees

The flowering period of a paw paw tree happens from April until May and lasts about 3 weeks. The flowers are striking with their dark brown colour and bell shape. They are produced on the bare branches. A remarkable aspect is that it does not get pollinated by bees, but by carrion flies and beetles. These pollinators are attracted by the specific time of the flowering, that coincides with the awakening of the carrion flies.

Fruit of paw paw trees

The fruit of a paw paw trees are just as special as its flowering. Appearance wise, they look like a thick sausage or potato, but they are surprisingly sweet and aromatic. The flavour is similar to a mix of banana, mango and pineapple. These fruit vary in length from about 7 to 15 cm and weigh up to half a kilogramme! Paw paws are very nutritious, rich in vitamin A and C and contains a significant amount of proteins. When kept in a fridge, the shelf live is 3-4 weeks.

Self-pollinating

De pawpaw boom is niet zelfbestuivend. For optimal fruit production, we recommend planting multiple different species of paw paw for cross pollination. Prima 1216 and sunflower varieties are self-pollinating, but also perform well whenever cross pollination is necessary.

Caring for a paw paw tree

Location

Paw paw trees grow best at a sunny location with deep and well-drained soil. This allows the roots of the tree to grow and settle well. A common problem is damage to the root ball, which makes it more difficult for the tree to thrive. It is recommend to use a mulch layer and to give the plant plenty of room to grow.

Watering and protection

The humidity level of the soil is important as well, especially during drier periods. Keep the trunk of young paw paw trees protected against harsh sun and severe frosts. Although the first flowers of the year might freeze off during late frosts, the tree usually flowers again at a later time, so that you can still get a good harvest.
