Asimina triloba 'Susquehanna'

Breeders' favorite, due to its large fruit size, few seeds, rich and sweet paw paw flavor, and firm but melting texture. Reliable yields and a durable skin round out this Southern beauty's desirable characteristics. Late to ripen, and well worth the wait!

Hand pollination will increase fruit set, alternatively, adding a small pile of decaying meat to the base of each tree just before blooms open will bring in the flies and beetles that pollinate these unusual trees. Shade from direct sun during first 2 summers - even mature trees may benefit from afternoon shade in hot climates. Also protect young trees from slug and snail damage. Needs 400 chill hours and 2200 Growing Degree Days (GDD) to set and ripen fruit.

Cold Hardy to USDA Zone: 5

Chill Hours Needed: Approximately 400 hours

Mature Height: 10'-15'

Sun: Full Sun to Part Shade in Hot Climates

Ripening Time: Late/Fall

Pollination: Need Pollinizer

Couldn’t be happier! Beautiful tree which is thriving! Excellent shipping and packaging. Highly recommended.

Arrived in perfect condition

The tree arrived in perfect condition and well packed. Be careful of sun. I’m at 4K feet elevation and the leaves were sun burning. A shade cloth solves the problem.

As pawpaw trees sell out quickly these days, especially desired varieties I was pleasantly surprised to find Raintree had this one left as I was ordering late in the season. It came within a short time to NC and looks fantastic. I potted it up into a slightly larger container for now and it is really looking good. I plan on putting it in the ground next spring. Great quality tree! Thanks


Def Great place to buy high quality trees.

Small and Arrived broken

Wish they offered more mature trees maybe then they'd survive the shipping process.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience. I am sorry to hear your paw paw did not arrive in good condition. We do have a very limited quantity of larger paw paws, and we are working to source/grow more. I see that we were able to issue you a refund for the one that failed to thrive. If there is anything else we can help you with, please reach out at! Keep growing, Rye (Customer Service Manager)
