Planting Information

Quince

A cousin to the apple and pear, quince prefer full sun conditions. Soil should be an almost neutral pH of 6.1 - 7. May add a lightly amount of organic matter and garden lime. Pruning of the 10 - 20 ft trees is like an apple tree for best production. Recommended spacing is minimum of 15 ft. between trees.

Pawpaws

 

Native to Eastern USA from New York down to Northern Florida usually growing as an understory tree. Shading is needed for the first few years, so planting at the edge of a wooded area would be ideal. The soil should be slightly acidic (pH of 5.5 - 7), high in organic matter and well drained as they will not grow well in heavy or wet soils. The large shrub / small tree is resistant to most all insects and diseases. Recommended spacing is minimum of 8 ft. between plants.
