Pawpaw seeds, sold out, available again in autumn



For all hobby gardeners who like to experiment!


Many of the Named Cultivars have been found in only a dozen or so seedlings from among hundreds tested.



The large-scale breeding has just begun!



The genes of all offered seeds are good, but the seedlings are not identical to the mother trees! They are genetic offspring, similar to parents but not clones .



In North America , Pawpaws grow in climate zone 5-9 . Step by step, gardeners enlarge the distribution area in the north and south by selections from seedlings.



It usually takes 6-8 years for a seed to become a fruiting tree. Therefore, I recommend growers to buy grafted trees (2 different cultivars for improved pollination) because they will bear fruit in 3-4 years normally.


Growing Pawpaw from seeds is also the best way to get healthy rootstocks for the refinement of well-known cultivar varieties.
