Get a couple of named selected varieties and then also some seedlings if you want more. Most seedlings are greatly inferior in size to the named varieties. I have a 'Wells' pawpaw which came from a nursery in NJ and also a group I grew from seeds. Check back threads in the 'Fruit & Orchards' forum for more on Pawpaws.

Of course, getting a named and select form of Paw Paw is ideal, especially if you have limited space or time to experiment. But here, seed taken from bought fruit will germinate, too. I often have seedlings coming up where compost of kitchen green waste has been spread. Plants (except for some special bisexual forms- nursery bought) grow as male or female plants, you only need one of the male if you have pollinating insects (or a paintbrush). But there is no easy way to discern whether you have a female fruiter or a male pollinator until they flower.
