Question & Answer

I purchased a red pawpaw (hybrid) from you some while back. What do I do once it has finished fruiting to keep it going? Do I cut it back, will more fruit grow on the same trunk or will I need to collect seeds and sow them in an attempt to get a viable plant - hybrid? From: Corrimal NSW

Once your Pawpaw is getting too high its good to cut it back to about 1mtr from the ground and let it reshoot. You will then be able to keep your fruit low down on the trunk. Spring and Summer are good times to prune back. #PawpawRed1050

Comments: - Very fast growing, tropical looking.  I have most of my paw paws growing on the east side of my house to protect them from the cold westerly winds that prevail here in Wollongong - seems to help.  Fruits taste way better than anything from the supermarket!  This is what paw paw is meant to be like :)

My best darling pawpaw, its up past my knees now and getting some fine big leaves the size of  my hand - still little but doing great for this area. I will be interested to see how it does here, we get at least 5 months of warm weather but we do get a frost every now and then. i hope that it will be big enough before winter to cope.
