I want to get as many diverse types of paw paws as I can, i'm willing to pay shipping or trade some of the seed varieties I have
Fresh seeds only though, the seeds need to be kept moist or they will not sprout.

hi Morgan,

welcome to permies

I will have seeds available by the end of September
fruit starts to ripen here in mid september

my trees were seedling from Edible Landscaping in Virginia some 30 years ago
if that's diverse for you
all with excellent fruit

I would send some seeds for postage or exchange
i typically collect 800-900 seeds each year to give away or start seedlings
so get back with reply then  and see "purple mooseage" above to provide details

I would love to take you up on that offer if you have enough seeds.  I have killed a few paw paws but I'm not giving up.

I used the Schumacher seeds source   https://www.treeshrubseeds.com/genussearch?g=a&ID=0 ;

Admittedly I did not treat them optimally, but I have some sprouting now.  Will have to get advice from others here on keeping them viable through the winter,.....which will fast be approaching. (Zone 3b)

my fruit is starting to ripen this week
next week I'll  have seeds available ( and will continue for the next month or so)
for those interested purple mooseage (pm) me (those new, see top of page)

provide name and mailing address
# of seeds
I mail them in a post office bubble container
that plus postage/handling is about $5.00 here in US
I'll pm you final mailing cost
send money via mail (I don't have paypal or anything else)

I can easily send up to 20 seeds for about that amount (seeds are free)
I'll provide info on what to do with them (if you follow, your should get 80% +/- germination rate)

if you want more  contact me with purple mooseage to discuss
 
I've got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments. Or a tiny ad:
