Paw Paw trees turning yellow and withers off

Papaya (pawpaw)    Tanzania

Hello,
I planted pawpaw trees 5 months ago and have noted some few trees started developing yellow leaves, the stem becomes weak, the tiny fruits that have developed start becoming black before falling off and soon having the stem falling off. The plants are in a dry and humid environment and I keep on watering them every morning and evening with a pipe.

This is my very first time to plant pawpaw trees and any assistance that would help me protect the other trees and treat the ones infected will truly appreciate.

Hello,this is just a comment and not a anwser. Because I am not sure how your pawpaw threes are going on. There are some advice:
1,Is your pawpaw trees blooming a lot of flowers and a lot of fruits? If so, then your pawpaw trees may be lacking in nutrition.
2,Your pawpaw threes may be lack of trace element fertilizer, like boron fertilizer.
3,You should check if your pawpaw trees have pests and diseases.
I hope my comment could help you and if you have some other question you can email me.
