Description

Considered the fastest-growing pawpaw cultivar, and produces large tasty fruit.  Mango pawpaw trees usually grow tall much quicker than other cultivars, and should start producing fruit in about 3 years from planting. The fruits are large, rounded and plump, around 8-14 ounces, resembling mangoes, with light yellow flesh. Thick, durable skin. The texture is very soft, juicy and creamy and the flavor is tropical.

Pollination: An Ultra-Select seedling pawpaw or any other grafted or seedling pawpaw tree will pollinate. For good pollination, plant trees 8-15 ft away from each other only. Pawpaws are not male and female, but rather have “male and female” flower parts on each flower. Every tree is capable of bearing fruit if pollinated well with pollen from another genetically different pawpaw tree. Hand pollination results in heaviest fruit set.

Resistant to: Pawpaws are generally remarkably disease and insect resistant. See our pawpaw growing article for full information.

Ripening: Mid Season (early-mid September in KY)

Site requirements: Full sun location for best fruit production. Pawpaws will grow in shade but produce much less fruit. Pawpaws tolerate a range of soil types provided the planting location is well drained and there is heavy mulch and plenty of fertilizer and water. Protected locations, such as on the South, East or West side of a building is ideal on very windy sites are recommended.

Size at maturity: 15-20′ tall and wide, depending on location, care and pruning to reduce height. We recommend heading them at about 10″ and removing suckers, both of which keep the trees very manageable and small.

Hardiness: USDA zones 5-9.

Plant size: Grafted, with an excellent root system. CHOOSE SIZE
