will pawpaw grow in soil that has a ph of 7.5? I have a clay soil but it does slope...
gardenrebecca on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in north carolina and the soil is clay as well. I planted 7 paw paws last year and since they like well drained soil i dug holes about 3 ft around and 2 ft deep and replaced the dirt with a combination of potting type soil, compost, and horse manure. So far the trees are doing well. I think the clay soil will not drain well enough
grafted?
Cesar D on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Mango pawpaw is grafted. All of the pawpaw trees we have are, with the exception of the "Pawpaw" which is a seedling.
would two mango paw paws cross pollinate enough or do I need different varieties?
Stephanie B on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For proper pollination, we recommend you plant another grafted pawpaw variety. Reference the "Pollination Requirements" section.

The perfect seedling
The mango Pawpaw seedling I received from Stark Bros was the perfect size and in great shape. Transplanting it into the ground was easy, and now I have a healthy sapling!

nothing coming up from original stick
The first summer I planted it, the stick put out leaves, but the following spring, nothing was put out from the original stick, but it looks as if something is shooting up from where the roots are.

Arrived dead
Not much else to say. Have waited patently for the plant to take off. It's cousin sunflower is doing fine, but the mango arrived looking less than lively and has remained as such.

Response from Stark Bro's
Thank you for your feedback. I'm very sorry to hear about your pawpaw. It looks like we substituted the Pawpaw Seedling as a free replacement for you. If you have any additional concerns, please contact Customer Support at 800-325-4180.
