Why plant Wabash® Pawpaw Treeling?

The precocious pawpaw! Wabash® Pawpaw is one of the earliest pawpaw trees to ripen, coming into peak picking season in the beginning of September and one of the most unique plants you could grow in your backyard. You'll feel like you're on a tropical vacation just stepping out into your garden! A flavorful fruit that smells just as good as they taste with a hint of citrus. It has been known to resemble a cross between banana and mango that tastes like Boston Cream Pie! The fruit may be smaller, but its productivity is more than abundant! This magnificent tree has a massive covering of large drooping leaves, so dense it feels like you're in the rainforest as you search for the clusters of fruit hidden within the branches. Pick one right off the tree this fall in your own family orchard!

Wabash® is as round as a... cannonball! Named after Wabash cannonballs, this round pawpaw is sure to 'knock your socks off' with its acclaimed flavor and ease of consumption. 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. Humans 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 Wabash® Pawpaw Treeling in the landscape?

Wabash® is a specialty variety of Neal Peterson. Neal Peterson is a well-known Pawpaw breeder, and is revered as one of the top horticulturists for Asimina triloba. A Peterson variety of Pawpaw means its more reliable, tastier, and guaranteed superior quality.

Grab a spoon, a napkin, a Wabash pawpaw, and you'll be in for a treat, literally! These round pawpaws have a flavor that rivals all other pawpaw varieties; it is one of the best flavors. With very few seeds, you'll thoroughly enjoy scooping out dollops of yummy fruit. Wabash pawpaw trees produce fruit of excellent quantity and quality for your yearly harvest.

How To Plant Wabash® Pawpaw Treeling

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 the 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.

How To Water

Pawpaws will appreciate regular water during its first few years in the ground and irrigation during long dry spells after it’s established.

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 fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

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.
