Slide 9: The
pawpaw planting guide is available on our web site and much of the information
that we will discuss today is contained in the guide. Pawpaw orchards should be
established at a site that would be appropriate for production of tree fruit
such as apples and peaches. A sloping orchard with good air drainage will
reduce the risk of spring frosts. A soil depth of about 3 feet is optimal.
Irrigation and weed control is important for tree establishment.
