If I were you I would get seeds from John Gordon in upstate NY.  He
has both Pennsylvannia Golden & mixture of all his short season Pawpaw
seeds.  PA Golden ripened fruit for me (8 years from seed) in
Southwest WI.  Not sure it will ripen every year, but I did notice
that the unripe fruits left on the tree & picked before the first free
did ripe up in a brown paper bag pretty quickly.

Here's his website.  He told me last year he didn't know how long he
was gonna continue sending material out.

If you don't want to wait 8 years, I notice a few nurseries are
offered PA Golden grafted.
