December 8, 2012 — Ever hear of the famed “Banana of the North?” These native fruit trees reign on You Bet Your Garden as Mike McGrath delves into growing the unique and delectable paw-paw.

Question of the Week

When do pawpaw trees bloom? Four years ago, I started five trees with seeds from a fruit I bought at a market in Lancaster, PA. The trees are about six feet tall and healthy, but no flowers yet. This year I also purchased two different varieties of professionally started trees, as it appears cross-pollination is necessary to get fruit. How old do these trees need to be before they bloom? And will my trees from seed ever produce flowers? Get the answer ยป
