Hi everybody,

Each year I offered paw paw seeds around this time. I'd like to continue it while I can. I also have a limited of fruit I can ship ( depending on location). PM me for the details. I can send 30 seeds or so for 5-6 dollars total including shipping. You can certainly order more if you'd like. The germination rate is pretty high ( although sporadic), but they must be stratified in the fridge for 3 months or so. Thanks, Bill.

Banana meets a mango- very strange flavored fruit for the northern climates. However, JFE sells some for Florida and the south that I grow here as well.

In addition to stratifying does it help to score or cut the skin of the seeds to help them germinate faster and get out of the shell easier?
Thanks

Pino, I don't know that scoring is needed. If you've got seed, just make sure they don't dry out - that kills the embryo fast.
They also benefit from deep pots when sprouting; they grow their tap root before they push up leaves.

I wrap mine in wet paper towels then seal in a zip lock bag. They grow good without doing anything else to seed
