WTB Pawpaw cuttings from named varieties
« on: May 27, 2022, 06:21:01 PM »
I recently picked up an 8' tree, and I'm looking to make it a cocktail tree so I can get fruit sooner/on a single tree. Given that, I'd like to get 4-6 total scions from various varieties. I'm not too picky about what varieties they are, as long as it's a good mix, maybe 1-2 of each.

I think it may be too late to graft pawpaw. It should be done when the root stock is just putting out leaves the size of a squirrels ear. This is usually in March or April.

Good to know, I'll try again next year. My tree is leafing out late, but I forget that scion wood has already leafed out. Thanks for the tip.
