Has anyone observed pawpaw growing in the wild in Ontario? I'm not asking for your specific spot if you have seen them! I'm just curious because I saw a picture of their range that included a little bit of SW Ontario.

I've read and heard that there are also wild pawpaw stands in the Niagara Peninsula. I'm going hunting for some next month, actually. I don't want to harvest so much as to get wild Ontario seed.

I've never ordered from these guys but they are just south of Montreal so the should be good to go for your zone.

Hope that helps, if you do try them out please let us know!  I'll hopefully be ordering some myself to try out in NW Ont, it's a little colder there but who knows...
