My Paw Paws from Dec to May. Just Look at Them Now

It was just Dec when the holes were carefully dug for my paw paw trees.

and they were planted.

Wow I forgot how fast they grow. I always had them in my garden when I lived in Zimbabwe years ago but in Johannesburg I didn't have much luck.

Nothing grows that fast in Colorado! That is so amazing! Just stopping by from the Bragfest!

I love these. I don't think they would make it in Illinois. I'm going to see if I can determine what zone you are in. I would love to have some trees with this kind of growth rate! Thank you for sharing on the Boardwalk Bragfest

I've never heard of these. What an interesting post. It's amazing how fast they grow. Thanks for linking to Woo Hoo! Wednesday and sharing.

Jan--
Pawpaws would do fine in southern IL, but up by Chicago, the winters are probably too harsh. The pawpaws pictured here are not the same plant that is called pawpaw in the US, though. Totally different leaves.

In regard to your comment Heather `Paw Paw' means `big melon' and are the fruit of the Papaya tree.

There is another plant call pawpaw which unrelated to this species.
