Dan, as far as pawpaw varieties or selections that would do well in Minnesota, there are 2 reasons they will not do well if you were to grow them here. One is that the growing season is too short. And the other is that normally the accumulation of heat units during the growing season is not great enough to mature fruit if you did succeed in having a plant survive our winters until it was of bearing age. Sorry to be discouraging, but I believe that is what research at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum found many years ago. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn. (USDA Hardiness Zone 4b)
