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.

What are the pros? Really neat

What are the cons? These take lots of patience

Review:

I planted my 7 seeds in late February. I followed the directions pretty well and had these in deep pots in the most shaded area of my makeshift indoor greenhouse. Our cold house meant I might get tough germination, even with heat mats. And sure enough-nothing, more nothing, so much nothing that I emptied the pots and inspected the seeds in mid-May. To my surprise, some had actually split and showed signs of life. At which point I panicked and tried my best to repot them. I moved them to a shaded area of our porch once the weather got warmer. Then a critter dug and ate a couple seeds that showed promise. All the others, except one, looked dried out (might have been my forgetfulness). The last one HAD A TAPROOT! It seriously took another month and a half, but the seedling is FINALLY getting green leaves. Folks, it's been FIVE months! I bought 2, year old trees for pollination so I now have 3 varieties. Read up-these take shade as babies and hand pollination to be successful!

Review:

Paw paw has a very long tap root so these must be sown into tall tree pots for successful germination. They must be protected from sun for the first two years this is why they are typically found as an understory tree. Kentucky State U has tons of info available on growing these from seed, and I’m glad many projects are helping people reestablish the paw paw into the home garden.

What are the pros? AMAZING TASTY HEALTHY FRUIT!

Review:

These pawpaw seeds are healthy, plump and sprouted strong. BUT YOU MUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS VERY CLOSELY! THE DIRECTIONS CLEARLY EXPLAIN HOW TO PLANT AND TO PROTECT FROM DIRECT SUN! DON'T BE A DUMB-DUMB AND PLANT THEM IN FULL SUN LIKE THE DIRECTIONS VERY CLEARLY WARN AGAINST! IT WILL KILL THEM! DON'T COMPLAIN FOR NOT FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS AND HAVING FAILURE! Once growing are easy to grow and are just gorgeous! Can't wait to get fruit!

Review:

I was very excited to try and grow pawpaw's. I ordered several packets and planted all of them indoors in a sunroom in pots. One sprouted I then put the pit outside in early June. The sun fried the seedling in a few hours to my horror.

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.
