Paw Paws

I got out the first time since my shoulder surgery yesterday. Just started driving again on Fri. Lots of Paw Paw groves in the area I was in. I've never seen Paw Paws hanging like this in all the years I've been hunting up there. You could fill a 5 gallon bucket in some spots. I was picking up fruits you couldn't wrap a hand around.

Re: Paw Paws

We have a lot of it on our property. And yes, lots hanging on the trees and on the ground. We got a nice bag of them yesterday.

The sleep of a laborer is sweet, while the rich man tosses and turns, worried about his possessions.

Re: Paw Paws

I tried the paw paw seed from Kentucky that was offered last year. Three sprouted and I planted them in good soil in pots. None have put up a leaf or stem.

Re: Paw Paws

4c they're right on the mountain overlooking I81 on this side of the river. They're all over the gamelands up there. I usually just fill a fanny pack or my bdu pockets. I ate about 5-6 of those big ripe ones yesterday and had that mess all over my face, hands and machete.

Re: Paw Paws

I saw a couple paw paw trees holding fruit today on the Cornell campus in Ithaca, NY. Located down in a wooded area along a little stream. I think most of them had already dropped fruit.

If So, that doesn't come out and over look the River!

Re: Paw Paws

Yep Woody, its the bottom edges of SGL 170. They got the area around Tower Rd. all posted up. I hunt a lot out of the parking lot on top of Lambs Gap. Either side of the road there's Paw Paw groves. You can't miss them.

Re: Paw Paws

This spring was my 3rd round at trying to get paw paw seedlings to grow. First two tries were complete failure. The ones I planted this spring.............let's just say they haven't all died yet. But they SURE aren't thriving. Planted persimmon seedlings in some of my poorer soils (saving better areas for the paw paws) and they shot up nicely. The very BEST of the paw paws put on a couple to a few leaves...........
