One factor is winter survival another is enough heat to ripen.  I put in a
Meader persimmon last April and due to coolest summer in 80 (according to a
local vegetable farm) it did not leaf out until August and then was shocked
by 22 deg on Sept 23.  I hesitate to try pawpaws as  summers are relatively
cool here on a general NE slope in the woods.  Due to lack of our usual
thaws and winter rains we have  had the most snow accumulation I recall
since 1969.  I have not pruned but a nearby NAFEX friend reported he just
did his trees on snowshoes getting a new perspective looking down on them.
