My Sunflower Pawpaw trees. They are big but no fruits yet...


@Luisport: Thanks for sharing the pictures! Very impressive!

To your comment regarding your not yet fruiting PawPaw s 'Sunflower': At this size the trees should have blossomed at least the bigger one.  Is that so?

It could have the following reasons (without claim to completeness in the enumeration!) for the fact that due has had no fruits so far:

1) The trees have bloomed but the flowers have not been pollinated.

Possible reasons:
a) No insects have been present that have pollinated -> Remedy: Manual pollination
b) Sunflower, despite its self-fertility, is not always a good fruit when the flowers are pollinated with its own pollen. -> Remedy: Plant further Asimina varieties (even a seedling is ok). I have noticed over the years that pollination with pollen of another variety brings better fruit set.

2) Variety is no Sunflower

Possible reason: Wrong declaration by nursery

Solution: Plant an additional Paw Paw, maybe from another source.


3) There were fruit sets, which either fell off after flowering or in the course of growing.

Possible reasons

a) The Location is too dry  -> So more watering should be done
b) temperatures has been too hot -> Artificial shading Installation can be a solution


4) The trees have not bloomed.

Possible reason:

The rest period was too short, i.e. not enough cool temperatures and duration / effect of the cool temperature. Paw Paw needs cool temperatures between autumn and spring for a longer period of time, maximum zone 9.

Helo Luisport,

thanks for your reply...sorryly I have seen this thread today the first time and only read the first page ...

Nice to read that you could harvest this year some small PawPaw fruits.

PawPaw variety 'Sunflower' normally produces fruits bit more large than an egg of a chicken, but some fruits can also be smaller.

When (which date?) you have posted some photos of your PawPaw fruits? I did not see this post.

Thanks!
