Variety of grafted trees to ensure fruit
AMRIE D on Nov 12, 2016
We have some wild PawPaw trees in our woods, but don't seem to have many fruits. We wanted to place some in a semi-shaded area of the back yard and love the idea they are the state fruit of Ohio and a native species. The taste varies from variety to variety so we liked trying more than one and also for cross pollination.

Because pawpaws are freaking awesome.

Excited about indigenous fruits. Tried for years to find trees near home but was unsuccessful. Thank you.

How would these do in dappled sunlight?
Jessica B on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Although I have only had my paw paws for one season, everything that I have learned about them, reveals that they will do well in dappled sunlight. In the natural environment in the deciduous forests of southern IL, they are an understory native. That said, I suspect they will produce more, if the sunlight is more prevalent, than less. Enjoy! Paw Paws are DELICIOUS!
Is this a 4in1 or 4 separate trees?
Jared N on Sep 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, It is 4 trees. Three are growing nicely, one I will need to get replaced, it never leafed out. My friend has paw paws in this area, NYS around Binghamton and they grow well.

What is an advanced root system, is it the same as bare root?
KC C on Feb 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Some of our fruit trees, nut trees, and landscape trees are grown in 4"x4"x10" Stark?? EZ Start?? pots. The bottomless design of these pots encourages trees to grow their roots down to the bottom of the pot where the roots are naturally air-pruned. This process forces more feeder roots to grow within the pot, creating a dense, more established (advanced)root system that naturally supports newly transplanted trees. The main benefit is better establishment after planting ??? and that means improved growth and development! A bare-root tree refers to the way the plant it shipped; it is not planted in a pot; the roots are "bare," meaning without soil.

A bit slow to take off but doing fine now
This collection seemed a bit small when they arrived and, although they leafed out, seemed to just "sit there" during the first year. This year, however, all four seem to be doing fine and I expect they will begin to grow more rapidly. One is slightly larger than the others and actually had two flowers on it but they could not be pollinated so dropped off. I would buy this collection again but would try to get Stark to send me slightly larger plants even if that cost extra.

I am located in Southwest Virginia near Marion at 2,542'. We do not have native pawpaws right here (in the past?) but they grow wild about 75 mile SW of us. Our temperatures sometimes drop to -10 briefly, we have some snow, and rainfall is usually pretty good. I would love to talk via email with other pawpaw growers in my area. Bob McKinney

These are slow-growing trees, so we are still waiting for them to get bigger and productive, but they arrived healthy and have survived two super cold St. Louis winters so far and are still growing taller and are super healthy

Great Little Trees!
We were looking for native fruit trees that are resistant to disease and discovered the Pawpaw. Out of our four trees two did great and two died (but were replaced by Stark Bros. Yay!) The replacement trees are doing well and the two original trees are growing like crazy. They have to be coddled a bit at first, if planted in a hot and sunny location they must be shaded to keep the leaves from burning while they are still establishing. We haven't gotten any flowers or fruit yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for next year.

Perfect indeed
We have wanted paw paw trees for years. We have tried growing trees from other company's and they weren't as hearty as these trees. Thanks to Stark Bros, we have beautiful paw paws growing in our yard and in a few years we will have fruit as well. These trees are incredibly healthy and strong.

I would recommend these trees for sure. They are a neat addition to other fruit trees. Stark Bros was very friendly, helpful, and professional about there products and stood behind their warranty. I will definitely recommend this company to friends and family!

Paw-Paw Collection
This collection arrived promptly and I planted the trees immediately after receiving them in the fall. They leafed out very quickly in the spring and are growing at a very good pace. I was surprised at how quickly they have grown because other paw-paw plants I have took several year to grow. They are too young to produce blooms yet but if their growth continues at this pace I wouldn't be surprised if they bloom in just 2 years. I would definitely recommend this collection.

Only 2 paw paw survived
The mango paw paw did not survive. I've only been able to save the custard and the prolific paw paw, I think. The tags blew off and I'm strictly going by memory on which is which. They are still very small, but the survivors are hanging tough.

You had me at Paw Paw
All 4 lived. Nice roots. 3 have excellent leafs and NC-1 is finally coming in. I couldn't plant because I got them late in the season. I packed them with snow when it snowed. Got to hold off planting till after the 17 year Brood 5 cicadas come. Thank you.

Paw Paw Trees
When I received my Perfect Paw Paw Tree Collection they arrived in good condition with small green leaves on each tree. I followed the planting directions that came with them but a few days after I received them we had a number of days of rain, about 14". After that the leaves turned black so I transplanted them into individual pots the see if I could save them. To this day they haven't grown nor has any more leaves appeared. However, they are still flexable and not dried out in any way so I am holding out hope that they will recover.
