Paw Paw seeds
« on: August 30, 2023, 07:04:23 PM »
It's that time of year again and I foraged a ton of wild paw paw (Asimina triloba) fruit. If anyone is looking for fresh seeds shoot me a message and I'd be happy to work out a trade. Cheers!

EDIT: All gone for now. Thanks!

Where were the seeds collected from? I definitely want to grow out some pawpaws but since I'm so far south I'd likely need to find some from the south east region to have a good chance of getting fruit here. I'm in the Florida panhandle. I do have 2 trilobas in the yard. One is doing very good the other is doing OK. I had gotten the select seedlings from just fruits and exotics. They did flower the last 2 years but no fruit set. Maybe because they don't flower at the same time for whatever reason.
Trying to grow it all!

These ones are from Williamsburg, VA. Fruit set is definitely sporadic unless you have a big stand of them.
