How old and tall are pawpaw trees?
Sean C on Nov 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That will depend upon the size option you choose, but they range from 2' to 5' tall, depending upon what we have available when they're back in stock. The trees are two years old.

One died ones thriving
Ordered two and one is about three feet now and leafing already this year. The other never came back. I'm happy the one isdoing so well I just hope there's a wild one somewhere close by to pollonate it.

I got this and sunflower pawpaw. Sadly the first sunflower didn't make it and its replacement is a couple weeks behind the prolific in terms of leafing out.
