Today cutting the grass around one of my two Pawpaw trees, a fruit was espied under the tree and I had my first view of a pawpaw fruit. I never saw any others all during the summer. Two trees from bare root stock were planted in 2007. They were about six years growing at the time. The last two years there were flowers but they all fell off and there was never any fruit. The fruit is soft, and pleasant tasting. I took pictures and am going to try to propagate from the seeds obtained. I suspect my area Zone 5 is about the upper limit for this cultivar. Both trees grow well and have much large leaf vegetation
