Protecting Pawpaws (and Other Fruits) from Pilfering

Save nylon mesh produce bags to protect fruit as it begins to ripen. The bags expand as fruit grows and help protect it from predators. Also, since pawpaws often ripen and drop off the tree within a short period of time, you can retrieve your fallen fruit from the bag.

This is a good suggestion, thanks. I have a hank of this nylon mesh stuff several yards long. If anyone needs it please let me know. It's a lovely green color.
