Product description

The pawpaw is family of the sweetsop and churimuya (Annonaceae) and the only genus that does not originate from the tropics, but from North America. That’s why the species is winter-hardy and proves to be a nice addition to the garden. The word pawpaw is probably derived from the word papaya, because the fruits look alike. However, the fruit flesh of the pawpaw is white and tastes like banana or mango. The fruits can weigh up to 500 grams and are rich in protein and vitamins. In nature, the flowers are pollinated by bugs and flies. Cross-pollination is necessary to get fruits, which is why u should grow several plants in the vicinity of each other in order to achieve that. Because the flowers emit only a slight odour, there may be a lack of insects. In that case, you will have to pollinate the flowers yourself manually. A place in semi-shadow should suffice; it’s an easy species to keep.

Vorig najaar 15 zaden gekocht. Paar maanden in vochtige zaai - en stekgrond in een afgesloten bakje (van Chinees eten) in de koelkast gezet. Rond maart in een warme ruimte gezet en vochtig gehouden. Net toen ik de moed had opgegeven zag ik de eerste kiem verschijnen. Ik heb vandaag de 12 ! Kiemplanten in grotere containers gezet. Ik ben benieuwd!


Triplet

Na 3,5 maand in de koelkast en 1,5 maand bij kamertemperatuur, 4 mooie zaailingen. Erg tevreden mee.
