I don't know where you're located. Here in NM with very intense sun, I have kept young pawpaws wrapped in several layers of shade cloth for a couple years. There's only sort of a twilight inside their shelter.

I'm going to order some shade cloth for some pawpaw seedlings in my nursery
yard (as well as some other potted plants) and wondered what the ideal %
shading might be for them. I'll probably order from Grower's Supply, where I
have choices from 30% shading up to 90% shading. Does anyone have
suggestions based on research (or, lacking that, experience)?
