They like slightly acid soil, love manure mulch, and liquid 20-20-20 every 
so often during the summer will help. When the leaves start turning and 
falling the pawpaws are usually ready, Here around the 1st of October zone 5

Here on the Oregon coast in zone 8a, pawpaws are a waste of space.
The trees grow so slowly it will be 40 years before they are big enough to
bear, I guess.
Mine were planted as 2 year old pots in 1991 and they are about 6 feet tall.
I have never seen a blossom on any of them.
The leaves are pretty but they turn yellow in the fall and fall off quickly
so they do not present a fall show.
The trunks are about one inch in diameter.
The limbs grow upright and are quite small in diameter.
So they have the appearance of a bush rather than a tree.
I have never seen them anywhere else so I don't know if this is par for the
course or not.
