We have four different varieties of Pawpaw in my backyard and Wells Pawpaw is my mother's favorite, so I am ordering her a tree of her own so she can enjoy them even more.

Strong but slow
The Wells Pawpaw survived the winter with no problem; however it is very slow growing. Perhaps after some fertilizer it will take off.
