Hey there.

Pawpaw is reported to be very difficult to propagate via cutting, probably because of their deep-rooting nature. Below is an article that demonstrates that cuttings made with seedlings two months old have success rate of 75%. I may try this with the seedlings I'm planting this spring, depending on how successful the germination rate is. I'll post my pawpaw experiment results in the temperate fruit discussion subforum on this site, and you can remind me to send me a cutting if mine do well.

Edit: Nevermind. I see you're wanting scionwood, not whole plants.

Hi Carlos,
I only have a couple of seedlings going, so I can't help you. I know of a guy in the Netherlands who has been breeding pawpaws for years now, he may have some good varieties. You will probably have to write him in english.
