Only the very best of the best genetics go into our Ultra-Select Trees. From Ultra-Select fruits of the finest quality and huge size including “Susquehanna” and “Sunflower”; two of the very best named pawpaw varieties in the world. Both varieties are known for very large sized fruits (8-16 oz+), reliable, heavy production with an excellent taste and high quality, creamy, sweet, yellow flesh. Pawpaws come very similar from seed, so therefore excellent pawpaws should produce excellent offspring. That being said, low quality or random wild genetics usually produce mediocre or poor quality pawpaws. Don’t risk it if you want excellent trees. These trees absolutely contain some of the very best genetics in the world and many will become champion trees!
We start our Ultra-Select seed off in our nursery-made, very rich organic potting mix and grow them for several seasons. We only sell the robust specimens with excellent root systems. All of our Ultra-Select trees come with a Blue-X TM tree protector tube to provide crucial UV protection to your young trees. Intense UV sunlight will damage or kill young pawpaw trees, so we have you covered with the inclusion of these tree protector tubes!
Pollination needs are covered as these 2 seedling trees will pollinate each other. You must have at least 2 genetically different pawpaw trees present in order to get fruit set. Done.
Our Ultra-Select seedlings should begin to bear fruit in about 3-4 years from planting, under good growing conditions (decent soil, organic fertilizer, irrigation as needed, tree protection, etc.) Detailed planting instructions are included.

Pollination: These two trees will pollinate each other. In general, Any other Ultra-Select seedling pawpaw or any other grafted cultivar or seedling pawpaw tree will pollinate them also. 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.
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 and is recommended. Pawpaws cannot handle wet or swampy conditions.
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″ and removing suckers via a mowing around the trees, both of which keep the trees very manageable and small.
Hardiness: USDA zones 5-9. (Estimate)
