Thanks for the reply.  My mistake was not keeping the planted seeds warm.

I got a pound of PA Golden Paw Paw from John Gordon fairly late, maybe early
June. Simply planting them in a warm greenhouse (80-85F) in a peat mix
germinated about 90%. They took about 6-7 weeks to pop. Im assuming they
were in cold storage over the winter.

NAFEX Members -- 

I have some fresh pawpaw seeds that I would like to germinate.  Last year I
kept gathered some fresh seed, put them in moist peat moss in a plastic bag,
kept them in the refrigerator over winter,and potted them in the spring.
None germinated.  

Would appreciate it if someone had some ideas on how I should proceed this

Thanks very much.
