I do wonder if paw paws, being understory trees, might be susceptible to some of the common causes of winter damage, like sun scald and desiccating wind. Probably best to give them a protected microclimate if you can. Maybe Michael's book talks about some of this! I think I'll grab a copy; good first-hand information on paw paw cultivation is a little hard to find.

I’m a New Yorker that ended up buying a house in Nashville that has an acre yard that I’m implementing Permaculture design, and was thrilled that pawpaw could be part of that. I would think that NYC would be too harsh for a pawpaw, but what do I know... there is a mature pawpaw visible from the BQE! (Brooklyn Queens Expressway) anyway,
