Paulownia Seed

Paulownia seed pod
About the Seed

The seeds come from a fruit called a pod. It has ovoid, woody, egg-shaped capsules about one inch to two inches long. The capsules turn dark brown in the fall and remain on the tree through the winter.  One mature tree can easily produce 20,000,000 seeds per season

The winged seed are very tiny (0.055-0.12 " long) and are dispersed by wind. Seeds should be collected after they have ripened but before they open. The change in color from green to dark green is a good indicator for collection.

​Field Planting

With proper weed control and care, germinated seedlings can be planted directly into the field 8 to 12 weeks after sowing.  The advantages of seed are several:

  • They are cheap! The less money used in the initial investment, the easier it is to make a profit.

  • Since you started them from seed, you control their health. There are no issues with damage during the shipping process. You can get very healthy seedlings!
