The Q&A Archives: Pawpaw Tree Production

Question: I have 2 pawpaw trees growing well for the last three years but they haven't bloomed or produced any fruit. They are now six to seven feet tall. Can you tell me why they haven't?

Answer: Pawpaws may take as long as six to eight years to reach bearing size and age. Once they do bloom, they often require hand pollinating in order to fruit. Unfortunately, it looks like you may need to be patient a little longer.
