I read that pawpaw seeds need a heat mat to help with germination. Not sure you could do that but it might be worth a try.

I can see some green growth on all 8 of my #grafted #pawpaw -- some looks like leaves and some looks like flower buds. I learned this weekend that the green growth is in fact from energy stored in the scion. It'll be a couple more months before I can be sure the graft was successful. 4 Apr 2022 #graftyourown #newgrowth #alwayslearning #asiminatriloba

They told me it takes two weeks for the union to heal if I got enough of the cambium touching @philstalder The scion wood has been in the fridge since it was cut and now it's indoors in warm temps so I don't know if the swelling buds are because of the warm temperature or if it's a sign of healing. The buds definitely look bigger than before.

#grafting the last of my #pawpaw #seedlings -- the trick is a long shallow diagonal cut (whip graft) and matching up the green cambium layers of the rootstock and scion. Wrap tightly with biodegradable grafting tape to seal in moisture and keep in a warm location to promote faster healing. Hope it works!!! 27 Mar 2022

@sushiwaitress cam you explain the reasons for grafting them at all? I know you graft apples to bring a tired tree back to life, but what does it do for a pawpaw?

8w
comment
sushiwaitress

I saved seeds from pawpaws I ate and grew these small trees. Their fruit won't be the same as their parent tree, and they're unlikely to be as good as cultivated varieties. So I got wood from the cultivated varieties so I can have the best fruit. It's basically cloning. @emch

8w
comment
richard.spicer.7906

@emch - Most apples are actually grafted to suit a desirable rootstock - if you grow them on their own roots, most will be too vigorous, or not hardy or not suitable long term. Various rootstocks have been developed to suit different end size trees and control the vigour. Similarly with pears and other fruits. Not sure about pawpaw but another reason is usually that you’ll get a fruiting tree much quicker from grafting. @sushiwaitress , what was the rootstock in your case - a straight species?

7w

richard.spicer.7906

Some rootstocks also help prevent certain diseases 👍🏼

7w
comment
sushiwaitress

@richard.spicer.7906 I just grew a pawpaw from seed and used the seedling tree as the rootstock. There really aren't different rootstocks for pawpaw. And you're right, grafted trees bear fruit a few years earlier than trees from seed.

Trying a new technique to #germinate pawpaw seeds. It's late March and I should have started this in January, but better late than never. This is an aluminum foil baking pan from the grocery store and the cheapest #heatmat I could find on Amazon. I cover the pan with cardboard from the recycling to keep the moisture in. Should have germination in one more week. 20 Mar 2022 #seedsowing #seedstarting

It shouldn't be necessary to overwinter them indoors, but they are in tall treepots and I'm worried the roots won't have enough insulation because they aren't planted in the ground. This is just temporary until I re-watch a video from a grower I know. @referee101

If he only have one tree then it wont set fruit. He needs 2 trees that are genetically different. Growing them from seed produces genetically different trees. If you plant your then someday his might set fruit

It's so crazy @referee101 because he has two trees that he grew from seed. They are definitely big enough to fruit AND they had buds last spring. Maybe he'll have to hand pollinate them. Being a root sucker, mine is a clone of his. But I'm going to get us some scion wood this spring and maybe in a couple more years we'll both have fruit.

Baby #pawpaw need shade for the first couple years, but they need full sun to fruit. So i built myself a tree shelter out of some wire caging/fencing material that my neighbor put out for the trash and which I scrounged just in time before the garbage truck came. I had an old XL t-shirt that I won't wear in public, so I cut it down the side and hooked it on with twist ties #reuse #recycle 27 Mar 2021 #repurpose
