Listen: Papa, United States, Atlantic discussed on Sustainable World Radio- Ecology and Permaculture Podcast
"So you want to sort of work within that need of the tree, which means, you know, not having windy sites. You know, making sure that has access to moisture, but again, not sitting in sort of a heavy wet soil. So papa's like to have their to be remain moist but not to lease saturated with water, so well draining soil, and what are the temperatures? What papa's like as far as temperatures in climate? So if we take the US DA agricultural zones they grow between zone five and zone nine. And so they're quite hardy. They'll actually go to negative thirty degrees Fahrenheit. But you're. Really going to struggle to get fruit in the colder. Parts of where they will grow coming more into zone. Six is where you'll be able to start getting your fruiting 'cause they like they like humidity. They like warmth. So they like warm to hot summers with humidity. Which is what we have here sort of been in the mid Atlantic region. Basically tropical here in the summertime that can be played with. And there are micro-climates in some of the colder parts, and there are outside of its its humidity range that can they can be grown in protected areas long as they have good access to moisture lots of mulch and now that goes for win too. So they they're they don't like to be in windy exposed sites. Because that's also gonna pull."
