Watering Pawpaw Trees

The following guidelines can be used to ensure your pawpaw tree receives the proper amount of water during it’s life cycle.

NOTE: This is part 9 in a series of 10 articles. For a complete background on how to grow pawpaw trees, we recommend starting from the beginning.

General Guidelines

  • Pawpaw trees need about 1" of rain per week so keep an eye on the weather. If rainfall is inadequate, you’ll need to supplement with water from a hose. The best way to do this is to let your garden hose trickle slowly. This gives the water a chance to soak in instead of running off. You can also use a soaker hose to water several trees at once.
  • Avoid letting the soil dry completely.
  • Avoid over watering.
  • Premature fruit drop is more likely to occur during dry spells.
