Answer: There can be a number of reasons your paw paw is not setting fruit but it is most likely that it is not being pollinated. Cold weather can severely restrict pollination and wet weather can restrict pollinator activity. Try hand pollinating by using a fine brush or your finger to transfer pollen from the anther to the stigma in a few flowers.
