What area of the country are you in? I’m wondering what the growing area for Paw-Paws is.

I’m in the Ohio River Valley. the parcel of land I bought has been in my family since 1901. It’s never been logged or messed with. we’ve got a ton of the trees. In a good year, i could probably pick up, 250 50 lbs off each of the trees, depending on the size, the majority though are slightly bigger than average. I just get overwhelmed with the sheer number of the paw paws. As for fruit growing, I moved 2 of the trees to right behind my house, in open sunlight, they’re about 5 years old now and just starting to really come on, the fruit on these 2 trees are much larger than the wild, native ones in the woods. However, the number of them is significantly less per tree so it equals out.

That no one on this forum has brought up the use of paw paw trees. I recently bought about 15 acres that is FULL of these trees. For those that aren’t familiar with these trees, they are in under growth tree that produces banana like fruit but do so with a much higher nutrient content including Vitamin C.

The reason i bring this up is because we are approaching spring time and it’s the best time to transplant these trees.
