Paw Paw in Chicago area?

ferrous(z5)July 12, 2010

I have a 2 year old paw paw tree. I want to buy more so they can cross pollinate and fruit.

Anybody has success growing paw paws around Chicago or zone 5?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I planted six last Spring, they survived their first winter. Doing OK currently. Planted five more this year. Hoping for the best. They do well here. I have a friend who has several that are 25-30 years old and bearing fruit yaerly.
