When growing pawpaws in a greenhouse, I found that it took fairly high 
temperatures to get them to germinate.  85 F daytime and 70 to 75 F 
night time were needed to get them going well.  Once they germinated 
the temperature could be lowered to 75 day and 65 night.  Without that, 
they didn't germinate until July here in the NW.

I purchased some stratified Paw Paw seed from a nafex member. I've put 
them in deep pots to accomodate the expected deep tap root. I have 
about an inch of mulch on top of the seed. What would be an expected 
timeline for germination and emergence of shoots? I'm told that I might 
not see any shoots until next spring.
