Grow a champion pawpaw! Once a staple in Native American and early settler’s diets, the pawpaw is now considered a rare delicacy. This tropical-flavored treat is the largest fruit native to North America. Most available pawpaw seed is obtained from wild, small, random seedling sources of greatly mixed and questionable genetic quality. Not our seeds! Offered is a mix of domesticated pawpaw genetic lines for optimal cross-pollination that results in large size (average 8-16+ ounces), excellent flavor, and premium quality. Peaceful Heritage Nursery is a rare fruit tree nursery and mini-farm located in Stanford, KY. Seeds are shipped in special controlled conditions for easier germination. Includes detailed growing tips.

Planting Your Pawpaw Seeds: Pawpaw seeds must never dry out or dehydrate. This kills the seed. Remove your fresh seeds from the bag and plant immediately, or leave in the bag with moist material until ready. Plant seeds under 1 inch of potting soil in containers and keep consistently moist (but not soaking wet), warm and dark. Potting mix should be very light and fluffy with perlite or similar material. Seeds first sprout and grow roots, then the tops show. Expect tops to show in about 3-6 weeks from planting. Remember to keep moist and out of freezing temperatures. Seeds can also be direct-sown in May outside in prepared seed beds or holes. Fertilize from April-July with a balanced organic fertilizer and keep roots mulched, moist but not wet. Pawpaws should start fruiting from seed in about 4-6 years depending on care given and rate of growth. Seedling pawpaws must be shaded until about 3 years old. This can be done with commercial tree tubes or any improvised way of keeping the trees in shade. Three foot tall chicken wire baskets covered with cheesecloth or greenhouse shade cloth attached with clothespins works very well. Full sun kills young saplings.

Review:

We have 2 pawpaw trees in our backyard that our son brought home 12 or so years ago from school as sapplings. They are now over 50' tall, going as understory of neighbors huge silver maple tree. They are tall narrow trees. However, we have never had them fruit. Thinking we have two male trees. We find their tiny flower buds on the ground around them in the Spring, so they must not be getting pollinated. Not sure we have room to add more trees in hopes off getting a pollinator, but thinking about it. Good to know I can find seeds here.

What are the pros? Can't find paw paws anywhere!

What are the cons? Long time to germinate.

Review:

I've always wanted to try to grow these, but have heard that transplanting them is hard, and they're difficult to grow in Arizona. So I opted for seeds. It's been over a month and these guys haven't shown any sign of life. I was very disappointed and decided to dig one up to see if it had rotted, and was happy to see some roots growing. I can't say how they taste or how well they grow, but they are good quality seeds, and just need plenty of time to sprout, so don't be discouraged if you don't see any growth for awhile.

Review:

Pawpaws are something we know about here in PA, but they only show up now and then at the farmers market. So I decided to take a shot at growing them myself. The package said 5 seeds but oh, my goodness, there were 7. If they all sprout, I will be up to my wazoo in little pawpaw trees! Three of them were already sprouting in the moist packaging. So, away we go! I planted them today in Jiffy peat pots for initial sprouting, Then I plan to transfer them to large nursery pots and keep them in the shade under my 2nd floor deck for the next two years. Hopefully, I will have some healthy and strong survivors to take with me to South Carolina in 2020.

Review:

I am so lucky to have found several wild pawpaw trees growing by a nearby stream. Was walking my dog along the trail and smelled an intensely sweet aroma in the woods. Following my nose, I found about half a dozen growing, with most all of the fruit dropping and rotting on the ground, what a shame. Ate several right there, soooooo sweet and delicious, I carried as many home as I could. Shared with some of my neighbors that have never seen a pawpaw, let alone tasted one. Kids were somewhat freaked out that I would pick a wild fruit....until the mustered up the courage to try one! And boy did they change their minds but quick!!! So, I strongly recommend that you buy some and help propagate this native fruit, as it is so sweet and delicious, a true delight!
