Pawpaw seeds, 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.

Apples bareroot, delivery in November

2 year old stable graftings, no fertilizer purchase for breeding.
Grafted on rootstock with semi-strong growth, 50-60%

Gravensteiner: The variety is known at least since 1669 in Denmark and northern Germany. The Gravensteiner is a summer apple that is ready for harvest from late August to mid-September. The Gravensteiner has been praised for centuries for its taste. He is one of the most tasty European apple varieties with typical, aromatic taste and strong fragrant fruits. He is much sweeter than most other summer apples. The color atlas fruit varieties comes to the conclusion "fruity, spicy, unique aroma, accented apple fragrance, excellent quality." Also untypical for a summer apple, the large-celled pulp is very juicy and crisp in the bite. Prolonged storage causes the pulp to become tender.

Flowering: early
suitable pollen donors e.g. : Cox Orange, Glockenapfel, Golden Delicious, Idared, Maigold

Red Boskoop: The Red Boskoop arose from a bud mutation of the Boskoop in 1923 in the Rhineland. Winter apple, the firm pulp has a yellowish-white color and tastes refreshingly sweet and sour.
The apples are harvested from the beginning to the middle of October. They are enjoyable from November to April. Since the Boskoop is a triploid variety, it is not suitable for fertilization for other apple trees.

Flowering: mid-early
suitable pollen donors e.g. : Arlet, Braeburn, Cox Orange, Delcorf, Glockenapfel, Idared, Summerred

Pears bareroot, delivery from November

One year old graftings, grafted on Cydonia "Quince BA 29" Growth: medium-weak 45%

Gute Luise: As a random seedling the Gute Luise was discovered in 1778 by a Monsieur de Longueval in Avranches. The tree grows medium to strong and is suitable for all forms of education. The branches are diagonal to steep upright on the trunk. The crown therefore develops narrow and high. The flowering time is mid-early, it starts already on young trees.
The medium-sized fruit is about 70-90 mm long and weighs 150-200 g. The regular and typically pear-shaped fruit has a greenish-yellow base color and is brownish red on the sun. The flesh is white to yellowish-white, melting, juicy and sweet-sour. It reaches its picking maturity in mid-September, the ripe for consumption in October (Central Europe) and is storable at -1 ° C until January. The Gute Luise is suitable for drying.
The cultivation should preferably be done on good soil. The demands on location and climate are not very high, so it is broadly cultivable up to medium altitudes. Good yields, however, require a warm location on low-lime soil; Wood and flowers can be damaged by frost. The yield starts early to mid-late and is high. The variety is susceptible to scab on both the leaves and the fruit. Good pollinators of this diploid variety are 'Clapp's favorite', 'Conférence', 'Delicious of Charneux' and 'Club dandelion pear'.

Wandbirne: variety unknown, the crispest and sweetest I know in my area.
