Today at the 326 Community Market: Large-fruited PawPaw Seedlings!

I was very fortunate to be able to purchase fresh pawpaw seeds last year... and get them to germinate.

It's not all that easy, since you need to have totally fresh seed that's never been dried out, then you need to chill it for months, then you need to plant and wait a few more months...

...but all that is over now. I now have a bunch of little pawpaw starts - Asimina triloba to be precise - and I'll be selling them for $5 each this week at the 326 Community Market.

These are NOT the little scrub pawpaws with the tiny fruit - these are the big tree type with large, tasty fruit. We're at the bottom of their native range, however there are trees here that set fruit. If you have a shady spot, pop a few of these in. I recommend buying at least a couple of them or else you're not likely to get pollination.

Beyond the pawpaws, I'll also be bringing some larger and rarer plants - perhaps even a big fruiting coffee tree - so stop on by. As always, I'll also be selling copies of Create Your Own Florida Food Forest for $7.

And I still have some white-fruited mulberries left, so come and get 'em.

The 326 Community Market runs every Thursday from 3 - 7PM and is really easy to find.

Google map is here. Their Facebook page is here (with lots more photos and info).

My prices are good and my gardening advice is free. See you there!
