Why the Susquehanna® Pawpaw?

Outstanding for combining large size with rich pawpaw flavor, excellent sweetness and fleshiness, and firm, buttery texture. It has the largest fruit, many pawpaw varieties, sometimes weighing over a pound! With a firm texture and is less fragile than most. Turn your backyard into an island vacation with Susquehanna® Pawpaw trees. This delightfully tropical fruit ripens in fall to keep the summer vibes going! Deep purple blooms come in spring as it opens up autumn with gorgeous golden foliage. Cut open the fruit to a creamy custard, eat it up with a spoon or enjoy in a smoothie to add a mango-pineapple taste!

Way down yonder in the Pawpaw patch... so goes the old folk song celebrating this beloved native plant, which has a long history in America. Pawpaw was valued in ancient times by Native Americans, and the delicious fruits later nourished European settlers and explorers like Lewis and Clark. Human aren’t the only ones who delight in this yummy fruit treat—wildlife love pawpaws, too. The foliage feeds the young of the dazzling white, black, and red zebra swallowtail butterfly. In fact, Pawpaw is the ONLY thing that zebra swallowtail caterpillars will eat, which is reason enough to grow this splendid tree.

How to use in the landscape?

Looking for a pawpaw with hardy fruit AND fewer seeds? Susquehanna® Pawpaw is the tree for you! This pawpaw mixes large fruits with thicker skin and a flavor that will make your taste buds melt in delight. The sweet fruits have fewer seeds than other varieties, making this an excellent choice for those who do not like a plethora of seeds. A moderate producer, Susquehanna® Pawpaw is an excellent choice for those who want to grow their own fruit without harvesting an overabundance.

How To Plant

Pawpaw’s home in the wild is at forest edges or in the woodland understory, and it appreciates similar conditions in the landscape. It is happiest in a site with rich, organic-laden, well-drained soil and a generous layer of mulch. It flourishes in shade but will tolerate full sun if it is shaded for the first few years and if regular irrigation can be provided. This tree doesn’t like constantly soggy soil, but it doesn’t like to dry out, either. Suckers may appear around the tree—this is simply Pawpaw’s natural growth habit. You may pull or mow off the suckers to maintain the tree as a single-trunked specimen, or you may let them grow to allow a Pawpaw patch of your own to form.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late year. Continue this for three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Prune as needed in early spring. Remove suckers each spring if you desire to keep your tree single. When growing primarily for fruit harvest you can treat them like a fruit tree and prune to maintain an accessible tree form using the open vase form.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
