Finally! Today I received my first, specifically ordered for BTD, diamond exotic fruit tree seedlings: US PAWPAW.

The two new babies arrived on the post neatly packed in a box and they look fresh and healthy when taken out.  They were shipped on Monday and I received them today, Wednesday, so the poor things have been travelling for two days!!  They are only about 5cm tall and to give them a good start I housed them in my Aquaponics System, in a semi shaded area, protected from the harsh summer sun by the big leaves of my Swiss Chards and Chard plants.  The system circulates nutrient filled water from the fish tank to the plant growbeds every hour for 5 minutes.  The water drains by gravity to the fish tank.  Wonderful recycling, self sustained system.

If you have had experiences growing these PawPaw trees, I would like to hear them.  I will keep on posting mine every few weeks or so...

While on the subject of gardening, I came across a couple of very informative interesting older threads:

Gardening, Sweet potato leaves or turnip greens:

About growing and cooking Kale:
http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-btdlf1/m-1255741078/s-25/


I am stil researching, so I will post more as I found them.  

How does my garden grow?

If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

Paw Paw is supposed to be native to this area, but I have yet to see one.

"This area" being Atlanta or in Aussie Land?

What kind of fruit is it? Does it go by another name..?

Area being Southeast US. You are not likely to find paw paw trees in the heart of Atlanta.  Map of distribution of common paw paws  http://www.nyx.net/~kbilton/pawpawdist.gif

There are some species whose range extend further south than shown on the map (into Florida). These species include A. incarna (flag pawpaw), A. longifolia, A. obovata, A. parviflora (dwarf pawpaw), A. pygmaea, A. reticulata, A. tetramera (opossum pawpaw), and A. X nashii.

Paw paw is the largest fruit (that people can eat) native to the U.S.  Fruit is  3 to 6 inches long often similar in size to a mango. The fruit when mature is soft and fairly thin skinned. Fruits will contain somewhere between 5 and 15 seeds about the size and shape of lima beans, but brown in color. They can weigh up to a pound, but are usually half of that.

Alternate names: prairie banana, Indiana (Hoosier) banana, West Virginia banana, Kansas banana, Kentucky banana, Michigan banana, Missouri Banana, the poor man's banana, and Ozark banana.

Cristina: If you plan to transplant them from you current location at some point--I noticed this little note on transplanting in wikipedia indicating that one needs to take a large root ball and not disturb the roots when moving:

Quoted Text
It is also difficult to transplant because of fragile hairy root tentacles that tend to break off unless a cluster of moist soil is retained on the root mass.

Oh, yes, Lola, yes, but those we can get them (if we look hard enough) here in Australia, but the US PAWPAW one is the elusive one, and it is the only one in that family that features as a diamond in my Swami!
I watched a show on Foxtel yesterday, just on tropical fruits in Australia and they were talking about the cherimoyas, sapotes, and many others.  The black sapote one left me drooling with its resemblance to chocolate!!!  I think I may get one of those too!!

Ribbit, I think Mrs T had a thread about 'having a Pawpaw week' and they may have mentioned there that they did find them everywhere, on the side of the road ... i am not sure where she is though.  Sure she will tune in at some stage to tell us ...

the paw paw in swami is my guanabana or cherimoya, and that s all I m going to say!!

Pawpaw is in the same family (Annonaceae) as the custard-apple,
cherimoya, sweetsop, ylang-ylang and soursop
