Heirloom pawpaw variety with exceptional flavor! ‘Taytwo’ produces medium sized fruit, about 4-8 oz. Flavor is delicious and reminiscent of cherimoya (pawpaws tropical cousin). Strong, healthy grower. Has more seed weight and smaller fruit than the latest cultivars, but makes up for it with delicious flavor and solid production.
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. https://peacefulheritage.com/pawpaw-frequently-asked-questions/
Ripening: Mid Season (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 8-10 ft tall and removing suckers, both of which keep the trees very manageable and small.
Hardiness: USDA zones 5-9. (Estimate)
Plant size: Grafted, with an excellent root system. 9″ special tree pots. CHOOSE SIZE
