I am overjoyed to see the, hopefully not temporary, increase in traffic on
Pawpaws - I am not sure exactly who or where, but I saw a note on the
Extension Service in Chatham County NC about a local that has planted in
excess of 40 Pawpaw trees and is testing for the best varieties. During
the season some fruits are available for sale at the local farmers market
in Pittsboro NC, but arrangements must be made in advance, they do not
always bring any to the market.
If there is interest I (or you) can contact the Ag Extension Service in
Chatham County NC to see if a name and contact information are available.
The soils of Chatham are not the "friendliest", most of the county has
heavy red clay, with areas that have a grsyer clay. The gray stuff hardens
into something like concrete, and when wet can be as slimey and slick as
grease. However, Chatham County is where Lee Calhoun lived and had his
extensive apple collection. Both Lee and his wife are no longer alive, and
I am not sure what may have become of his mini orchard.
