do black walnut trees affect Pawpaw trees?
Robert C on Sep 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting us. Black walnuts produce a chemical called juglone that is detrimental to some species of trees and plants with the exception of Pawpaws. Pawpaws are tolerant of this toxicity and will do well growing in the same location.
I know when they bloom they smell bad. My question is how far away can you smell them?
DEBRA K on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: While pawpaw flowers have an odor, this is only noticed up close. In our large orchard, this is not noticeable, even working around the trees during flowering.
Can I grow them in containers?
Frank C on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can grow almost anything in a container! This article should be of interest to you:

Growing Fruit Trees in Containers:
//www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/fruit-trees-in-containers-pt1

Please note that "container" does not refer to the shipping container in which the tree arrives; you will need to "pot up" to a large container.
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.

Amazing tree
I got fruit in its second year. Very light creamy flavor and the furit holds up better than the wild paw paws I've found.

doing well
The pawpaws are growing slow, but well. You have to make sure you keep them in some type of shade as their first few years of growth needs to be out of direct sunlight. These are traditionally an understory tree.

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!

ordered 2 have 1 now :(
I ordered 2 of these planted them in the same location but sadly one did not make it over the winter. I highly suggest when you plant them that you get the root starter to add to them; this was to only thing that I did different with mine cause I ran out. Gave it 4 stars as this could be a fluke and not a product flaw; also the other is doing fine. Make sure you plant them under other trees or close to a tree line as they like the canopy shading

it's a dead mango pawpaw
This thing appeared dead when we got it and never snapped out of it.

I have had great luck with Stark brothers in the past and continue to use them for both spring and fall planting but unfortunately I must admit this is the only tree I have ever purchased from them that did not make it. It leafed the first year and died during fall. I left it to see if it would come back this spring and sad to say it did not. But this does not indicate the quality of their products only that sometimes things don't go your way. Keep planting! - Jeremiah
