What variety/ source is recommended for me to purchase Paw Paw for my property and how best to prep the clay to allow best growth? Also full sun or part shade? Thanks.

Check out Peaceful Heritage Nursery who is in a similar zone with a good selection of paw paw genetics. The key to clay is organic matter, deep mulch. I recommend a minimum of 8” deep by 4’ diameter of organic matter per paw paw tree. As long as the clay drains it should be fine. Full sun for full fruit.
