Pawpaw Season Is Upon Us Again

Recommended Posts

Yes it's that time of year again for Ohio's largest native fruit.  Pawpaw clusters are filling out on the trees and a few early ones are starting to fall.  I think a couple folks on the forum said they would like to have some seeds to plant.  Message me, and I'll try to arrange that.

I started 6 seeds this spring.  2 of them sprouted, then while we were away on a trip, they flooded.  Woo hoo!  I’ll PM you!

Thank you @Rick3478!

 

I scarified(scuffed with high grit sandpaper) the seeds when they arrived and placed in the fridge to stratify(cold treatment).  December 6th 2023 (90 days) I planted them in pre moistened medium with bottom heat and covered with wrap.  They are starting to sprout today.  I will snap pictures when its exciting:D

 

Thanks again! I have hundreds of sapling native Paw Paw on my acreage.  None are fruiting age or... tree rats and deer steal them.  Not out there all the time.  Yet

Fine business!  I hope you didn't start them too early, though it sounds like you are giving them every advantage, it will still be a shock to the vascular system when you transplant to their final home.  I have seen one or two fruit on trees around 10 feet, though they don't usually bloom much until they are older, like 15 or 20 feet.  Good luck!
