Back in 2013 I took pics of the fruit on the bush...
Thumb of 2016-07-28/stone/5349fe

and then the varmints got the fruit before I could...
This year... I caged the bush with a bit of welded wire... Tested the fruit yesterday for ripeness... dropped in my hand...

9 seeds in one, 8 seeds in another... planted those seeds (in gallon pots), as soon as I spit them out... cross fingers... I've only located the one bush growing on my property... want more.

Crape myrtle are very easy to move... And then come back and dig out all the babies that come up from the severed roots...
Can't do that with paw paws...
Can't move paw paws at all...
Kind of a rare plant...

They were fairly easy to move when I moved them 14 years ago.

Any updates on your seedlings? Did they not need cold stratification?

I planted the seeds in pots... Nothing to report.

When i planted paw paw seeds from the typical tall variety.... They came up in the spring... (in the pots)... And I set those out with no difficulty.
(several years ago)

I grew a few Asimina triloba from seed and they did great after spending 4 months in the fridge in some damp peat moss. I sprouted a few wild ones and some improved varieties from Cliff England. The wild ones I will be grafting over this coming spring with named cultivars. I never tried growing Asimina obovata, Asimina incana, Asimina reticulata, Asimina longifolia, Asimina pygmaea, or Asimina tetramera. Do you know what kind you are growing?
