So what are your plans for all the seeds you're collecting?
QuoteSo what are your plans for all the seeds you're collecting?The ones I keep are going to spend the next 100 days in a big bag of moist peat moss in the fridge like I did with last year's. The first batches will be ready for sowing by mid-December. If last year's pattern holds, I should get the first sprouts sometime in February. Last year's seedlings didn't fare so well because I was out of town so long and I couldn't take care of them. An earlier start and better planning should alleviate this.The rest I'm going to send off to other people who want to try growing them. I might also use them to trade for some rare seeds, as pawpaw seeds seem to be highly sought-after on this site.
a coworker offered to send me the coordinates of holler in Eastern KY where he claims you can harvest pawpaws by the truckload. It'd be a hike out there, but I'm really thinking about taking an expedition out there to find the motherlode.
You folks can even look for wild mushrooms in the same trip. I'm not sure what's available over there. Here in CA, it's mainly in anthem winter wet season.
