The ksu atwood however is growing much slower.. the leaves look light green with a discolor on the back, are smaller, look a little deformed almost.. not completey deformed but not full or uniform they look kinda weak almost? And its not growing too much. I am trying to keep the soil moist but i'm wondering if it could be transplant shock still? I'm just wondering whats going on because the other two paw paws next to this tree are flourishing and they are all in full sun. The trees are about 2 feet each. The ksu atwood may be onlt 16-18 inches tall. Im gonna try shading it from now on but i was curiois if anyone else has any tips or experience with paw paws to know what could be going on?
I find it awesome your growing a native Ohio fruit.
Locally in our parks there are a few still around and Ohio has a few annual Paw paw festivals

While I do not grow them I do know there is a wealth of information on the internet and there is even a paw paw club which sells plants.

My guess is your plant is still in transplant shock
