I'm slowly (aren't we all?) putting together a permaculture Paw Paw orchard outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas. I've got three planted as tests and they've done well over the past year, so I now have another 8 ready to go into the ground this year and 28 seedlings planted in RootMakerII pots. My plan is to have more than 80 trees in the ground by the fall of 2020!
Anyway, welcome again and good luck to everybody in the drawing!

I'm glad to hear you are working with Pawpaw. We need more folks working with this amazing native fruit. If you haven't read it yet, I recommend Pawpaw: In Search of America's Forgotten Fruit by Andrew Moore.
Are you planting one (or more) of the improved varieties? Where are you getting your stock?
Also, what is the larger context of your orchard? Pawpaws definitely seem to do better in a diverse food forest setting where they can act as an under-story tree. What else are you working on for the other layers of your system?

When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
