Your pawpaws should be fine.  In their natural
habitat, they're understory trees, very frequently
growing in the shade & root zone of large black
walnut trees along creeks and in watercourses through
upland forests.

Subject : RE: [NAFEX] black walnuts and pawpaws

 In October I planted two seedling pawpaws in a
sheltered but sunny  
location down near the creek. There are many young
black walnut trees  
in the area. The two pawpaws are in a clearing, but
we did cut down a  
couple of small black walnuts to make room for them.

Will they be OK in the vicinity of the walnuts? I'm
wondering whether  
I should plant a grafted pawpaw near them in the
spring. I wouldn't  
want to lose my investment in the grafted tree if the
walnuts are  
going to make it impossible for the trees to thrive.

thanks,
