They like a slightly acid soil. Work into the hole a bale of Canadian
Spaghnum peat before planting.

I live in a limestone soil region. Would pawpaws do well here?

I just had my first Papaws from my orchard. I have had the trees for
about 20 years. They are about 20 feet high. I believe that I have just
one variety. It suckered another large stem a number of years ago that is
as tall as the original tree. I planted two varieties but the other one
died almost immediately.
If these were grafted selections, the root sucker that came up is from
the seedling rootstock, and is, indeed, a second 'variety', thus providing
the opportunity for cross-pollination between the two.
