Can I see Your Paw Paw Tree?

I am looking to add a couple paw paw trees to my landscape. Problem is, I cannot get a good enough picture of paw paws to compare size and shape of a whole tree. Do you have one in your landscape?

They are fruiting now. Do you have a pic of the fruit on a Penn. Golden?

Oh, be still my heart! It look so tropical. How much space does it take up in your landscape? Could you place two in a 20' area?

Mine are 8-10 feet apart.

That is wonderful. I am planting one 5' from a row of blueberry bushes and 10' away from the next pawpaw. They will get max 6 hours of sun, but no more. I hope they will be happy! A little worried about growing them out of their happiness zone though.

Near the bottom of this linked thread is my post with a picture of a full grown tree, about 18 - 20 ft high. Not sure of the age of the tree. Don't know if they get larger. Don't think this one has had pruning, fertilizer, mulch, etc but there are a couple smaller trees in the yard.

This one grows in Madison, WI... i planted a paw paw just for the foilage. I really like the shape of them/leaves.

What an interesting shape! Thanks for the pics. 10' apart it is, and looks like they will give me nice shade.

I just wanted to resurrect this thread by sharing an interesting blog page about a native patch and a pawpaw enthusiast that is local to Massachusetts. I found a like-minded individual who has posted some interesting info on pawpaws and I thought I would share.

Also, it seems that Tripple Brook Farm in Southampton, Ma. also sells pawpaws and has a stand of native persimmons and paersimmon trees to buy.
