The folks at hdqtrs. confirmed that you may pick paw paws on game lands. They said they are considered a berry. They also wanted to know where I was finding them. My warden asks me every year how the paw paws are doing.
That is the first time I ever heard the PGC considers them a berry.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

No you cannot pic fruit, you may pick mushrooms and the fruit of "Berry" producing plants. You may not pick apples, pears or other fruit. Someone must have looked up the definition of Paw paw since I left the agency, I looked it up and they are defined as the largest berry producing tree in PA.

Botanically, blackberries and raspberries are not berries. They are aggregate drupes. A strawberry is not technically a berry. So what's a hair-splitting Warden to do? What a stupid way to write a regulation.

That regulation was in effect for over 50 years and seems to have held up just fine. has held up

I know of no paw paw trees anywhere in my corner of 2D except for the couple scraggly ones I've been trying to get going for a few years...……...with very little luck.

I would also pay for a few seeds, had a memeber of this board go out of his way to get me some persimmon seeds, would love to try and grow a few paw paws, I have some swampy areas where I'd bet they'd thrive.

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...

I could send some paw paw seeds your way, but from what I have read they like well-drained areas. The ones have I found have been on hillsides.

They definitely like growing on the sloping areas were I hunt. Still a few hanging on trees in spots. Got a few big ones the past week, but they're winding down for this year.
