Paw Paw Collection is rated 2.3333 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with Paw Paw quality or selection I also received 2 bare roots; one made it and the other didn't. Other websites show specific species names of Paw Paws, Burpee only shows Paw Paw Collection. I will be buying from another company. One root is growing well however I need another to pollinate my unknown survivor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Paw Paw I had to put rabbit wire around my plants because the rabbits were chewing off the leaves. One of the problem with starting with such small plants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still hopeful One plants was shipped with little to no roots and was very dry and brittle. The other looked good. As I expected the brittle one never did anything. The other plants seems to be growing well. Followed detailed instructions on both plants.
