We have moved from the homestead where I planted the pawpaws and so I don't have any on our new homestead and would very much like to have some. Our new homestead has a seasonal stream/draw with an overstory of Osage orange and honey locusts into which I would plant as many pawpaws as I can get my hands on. If you do have something to send me, let me know and I'll IM my mailing address to you.

Dan, if I find some fruit at this summers market I would be happy to try and send you some fresh seeds. I potted these with some pulp straight from the fresh fruit (that was delicious, by the way).

Scott Foster wrote:Judith, you just reminded me that I put out a bunch of Paw Paw seeds last year. I now remember the location and that I weeded that area. LOL. Pretty sure I yanked the seedlings if they came up.

I posted some "advice on growing Paw Paws" several years back, that covers most of the issues.
I've learned a lot about growing these trees from trial and error, and observation in the wild.
You can easily succeed in growing them by following a few simple guidelines.
Good luck and happy gardening!

Vernon Inverness wrote:Hi, Judith. I don't know whether the season is past, but if you come across that vendor again I would happily compensate you for one or two of the fruits for seed. We recently moved out to the country from being in the middle of town and I really want to get some pawpaw trees started where we are. I just don't have a local source. It seems that we may not be too far from each other and if they grow for you there may be a chance that they'll grow for me.
