Pawpaw trees growing in my allotment

Anybody growing pawpaw trees and willing to share some insights and experience? I mail-ordered seeds last winter, and got two plants out of twelve seeds. I have planted the seedlings and organized some winter protection.

Hi! I haven’t grown one myself but I know someone who has a small sapling. She suggests shade. They actually grow better in some shade. That’s probably something you already know but just throwing it out there :slight_smile:

I planted the two pawpaw seedlings in the shade of old lilacs that will be removed in a couple of years time. I really hope they make it through the winter, I have piled lots and lots of autumn leaves over them.
