Halvin Sidewinder Pawpaw Description

Halvin Sidewinder pawpaw is a hardy and resilient tree originated in the wilds of Iowa, with medium-large fruit of excellent quality. Discovered by Tyler and Danae Halvin growing wild in Iowa. Fruit is 8 to 14 ounces. Great flavour, very sweet and smooth with no aftertaste, with a hint of pineapple flavour. Stated to be the largest native pawpaw fruit to be found in southwestern Iowa, not far from Bedford, IA. Early ripening and hardiness make this pawpaw a first choice for harsh regions or the northern cusp of pawpaw growing territory.

Recommended for ORGANIC GROWING

Pollination: An Ultra-Select seedling pawpaw or any other grafted or seedling pawpaw tree will pollinate. For good pollination, plant trees 8-15 ft away from each other only. Pawpaws are not male and female, but rather have “male and female” flower parts on each flower. Every tree is capable of bearing fruit if pollinated well with pollen from another genetically different pawpaw tree. Hand pollination results in heaviest fruit set.

Resistant to: Pawpaws are generally remarkably disease and insect resistant.

 

Ripening: Early Season 

Site requirements: Full sun location for best fruit production. Pawpaws will grow in shade but produce much less fruit. Pawpaws tolerate a range of soil types provided the planting location is well drained and there is heavy mulch and plenty of fertilizer and water. Protected locations, such as on the South, East or West side of a building is ideal on very windy sites are recommended.

Size at maturity: 15-20′ tall and wide, depending on location, care and pruning to reduce height. We recommend heading them at about 10″ and removing suckers, both of which keep the trees very manageable and small.
