Watering is the most important aspect in growing papayas. The trees should be kept on the dry side to avoid any root rot from occurring. However, they do need a moderate amount of water to support their large leaves. In winter, papayas prefer to be as dry as possible. This is simply to avoid any frost and ultimately avoid root rot. In the warmer months, they can handle as much water as you give them as long as their soil is well-drained.

Papaya trees need a soil that is lightweight and well-drained. This is to avoid any possibility of the tree soaking up too much water and causing root rot. Any type of cactus soil mix works best with Papaya trees.

Papaya trees grow extremely fast, which requires them to have regular applications of balanced all-purpose fertilizers. A good rule of thumb is to feed monthly and adjust according to how the tree is responding. Always remember to water your tree directly after fertilizing to help carry the nutrients down the roots.

If you plant a Papaya tree where no other plant seems to be happy, you've planted it in the right spot! These trees thrive best in warm heat and bright sunlight. Where these fruit trees can grow in shade, their fruits produced will not be sweet.

Papaya trees are intolerant to frost. During the cold, freezing months cover the tree with a burlap-covered or plastic sheeted frame. You can also place an incandescent lamp inside the frame. Want to be festive and add Christmas tree lights on the tree? This is a great way to give it the extra heat the tree needs. However, don't cover the tree with cool LED lights, they do not provide the heat needed for the tree's survival.

This depends on the climate of where you live, not the length of time your tree has been planted. In hot regions, these trees can bear fruit as quickly as 6 to 9 months after the seed is planted. In more moderate temperatures, this fruit tree can take 9 to 11 months to harvest after the seed has been planted.

Asimina triloba, or the pawpaw fruit tree, is a member of the custard apple family, Annonaceae. Pawpaw is a deciduous tree that has a narrow, conical growing habit reaching heights between 12 and 20 feet. The leaves are dark green and oblong, extending up to 12 inches in length. The dark brown flower buds turn into maroon flowers that are about 2 inches across and upside down. Pawpaw fruits are the largest native edible fruit in the USA. The seeds are about a half inch to an inch and a half long and shaped similarly to lima beans. The fruits also typically grow in clusters of up to 9 individual pawpaws.

Young plants are very sensitive to full sunlight and will do best with filtered sun for the first few years but will love full sun when mature.

When you buy PawPaw trees and plants online, keep in mind that the large leaves of the Pawpaw also do not typically do well in windy areas. They do best in fertile soil that will stay moist but drains well. They also prefer a pH range between 5.0 and 7.0. Minimal pruning will be required to remove dead wood and damaged branches. Also, some periodic pruning may be good for fruit set since the fruits appear on new growth. Pawpaws are mostly disease free and have an innate resistance to Oak Root Fungus. They are not pollinated by bees, and instead rely on a series of flies and beetles, which can create an issue for home gardeners not getting proper fruit set. The easiest way to remedy the pollination issues is to hand pollinate using a soft artist's paintbrush to transfer the pollen from the flowers of one tree to the other.

Pawpaw TreesThe Paw Paw is a true native American fruit tree indigenous to the entire eastern half of America, from Texas to the Great Lakes and down the east coast to Florida.

Papaya originated in the lowland tropics of South America, but today you can find papayas growing everywhere in the tropics and subtropics AND right here at the Virginia Zoo. This tropical plant likes rich soil, adequate water and full sun. Here at the Zoo, we have papaya growing in our tropical beds and there is a very showy variety right off the plaza (shown here). Not hardy in Hampton Roads, this unique plant can offer fruit or just be grown as an ornamental during the spring, summer and long falls.

To get started and grow your own papaya, we suggest starting them in pots indoors and starting them in early December. You can purchase the seed from a seed source or a local garden center or even from fresh papaya found in the grocery store. Plant the seeds in a nutrient rich soil and in about 3-5 weeks some of the seeds will begin to germinate and push through the soil surface. Give them a few more weeks to grow and separate them out to their own individual pot. Plant outside after the threat of frost, which is around mid-April for Hampton Roads. Be sure to water and fertilize. 041b061a72
