yes - we have great access to the corvallis repository - joseph
postman, their curator, has a great relationship with the Home Orchard
Society, so we pick fruit in the fall there for our tasting shows. i
have several seedling pawpaws and one grafted 'sunflower' cultivar,
all of which ripen nicely in oregon city. i don't have any space for
more pawpaw now at the HOS arboretum, but i do have a new seedling
patch at my house that i am waiting to sprout this summer.
oh - any special grafting advice for grafting pawpaw? dormant season
cleft grafts or summer budding?
thanks for the advice,
