Benny,

I am stuffed. I cut them in small chunks and use them on ice scream topping and smoothie.

Alex,

These two trees are about 11 yrs old. and i decided to hand pollinated this year and had great fruit sets. I had to prop some of the branches.

I have what is supposed to be Sunflower and it's very far from being ripe here in SE NY. Usually it isn't ready till towards end of Sept. Of course there's no way to tell if the tree is correctly ID'd. It's my best tasting mango and its late ripening makes it that much better for me.

Is that your only Pawpaw,Sunflower is suppose to be somewhat self fertile or are there more?If there are more,what's your method of pollinating them? Thanks,Brady

Overlease is the other I have. I have noticed at another site that paw paws are somewhat self fertile or at least there is a variety there that is. The same site has a very self-fertile and delicious American persimmon, can't remember what variety but it's Lee Reich's fave.

Pollination doesn't seem to be a problem for me so I assume it happens at night for paw paws. Never see any attendance to flowers during the day.

The variety is Szukis, now that you mention it, but the fruit is seedless as I recall. I will check that out next time I'm on that site. Good variety for short season areas.
