Pawpaws varieties flowering at different times

My pawpaws have flowered last year and this year and they don’t properly pollinate each other because they flower that different times. My seedling is flowering now, after that is done my Wabash will start and then after that my Mango and Susquahanna. Anyone else have this problem?

Take a paint brush and collect a bunch of pollens into a ziplock bag and freeze them. You can hand pollinate the ones that bloom late. Pawpaws had lots of pollens and easy to harvest. Mine are bloomed close together.



That is what I do but I don’t have anything to pollinate my first variety with. I wasn’t sure if others were having this problem or not. I have not read anything about early and late blooming varieties, it may just be something I am experiencing.
