The Paw Paw's are ripe and the critters are eating them quick.
I should have quite a few seeds this year.

Just about everything. Squirrel, Coon, Possom, Deer, Bear and people. I have seen a lot of turkey scraching in the Paw Paw patch.

Ounce a patch is started it will reseed its self for years. You don't plant a Paw Paw seed. You just lay it on the ground and go away. It will grow. I have seen them up on hills but they like low damp spots.

I wish we had more of them around here. I love Paw Paw's.

I'm going out in my canoe soon and get a bunch of them. I know where a creek bank is full of them. Darn good eating aren't they.

I'm going to squeeze out the seeds, blend them up with a big helping of honey and have some of the best natural Fox and Coon bait around.

Dimpsy, find a spring or seep or any damp spot and just lay 10-15 seeds out. In about 2 to 4 years you will have lots of fruit.

So that' what that song my dad used to sing is about. Way down yonder in the paw paw patch.... Didn't even know it was a real thing. What kind of taste do they have?

Justan that is way too hard to answer. I will try though.

The skin has a verry slight bitter taste. Not bad, just very slight. The fruit is not sweet, not tart. It has the texture of a real ripe banana. It is smooth like pudden.
And the ripe ones are real soft and has a distint smell that I can't describe. I find them by smell. They seem to be real rich and you may only eat a few at a time.

The only way you will know for sure is to eat one. They are not nasty. I like them. If you are going to try one just make sure it is ripe. DON'T EAT THE SEEDS. You may poop like a coon or possom.

In the fall or winter. That way they can lay dorment and sprout when the right time comes. Remember don't plant them. Just lay them on the ground and if you really must, just press them down slighty, but not under the dirt.

I will gladly send you some. Though I would rather trade you some for whatever you have that the wildlife will eat.

Dan I have always heard that about 50% of all people are allergic to pawpaws is there any truth to that?

I'd say that percentage is much less. I've never met a soul that's allergis to them and I know a lot of guy's that eat them.
