Anyone ever tried this? I've been wanting to try growing pawpaws for while now since its a true Southern and American fruit. The catch is I don't have any land of my own. My porch is pretty big, and maybe I could grow some and prune them back or something. Anyone ever tried this?

Hi AuburnAL,

It may be doable. I have seen some pretty small paw paws in southern regions thought they are known for deep tap roots. I had tried some in my yard but they were decapitated by plumbers putting in a main sewer line even after I told them to avoid them. I too pine for paw paw.

Perhaps this would work in a pot but I am not sure how this would work with a freeze.
