Normally the time period for best pawpaws is second week of Sept to mid
Oct. Yes, they ripen on the trees. If you are wanting to compare named
varieties I'm not the best source. U of K, Frankfort, Dr. Kirk Pomnper is. My
are from my breeding and PA Golden is was not a pollen or egg source.

I was planning on planting some nitrogen-fixing shrubs (sea-buck thorn; gou=
mi; buffaloberry) about 15 to 20' away from of an Asian pear - then, I real=
ized that excess nitrogen in the soil will encourage fire-blight, unfortuna=
1. Does it sound safe to say that the goumi (Elaeagnus multiflora) is the l=
east likely to have roots that would extend far from the plant? I assume t=
hat it doesn't spread via rhizome, that it only suckers around its base?
2. If I plant sea-buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) and buffaloberry (Shephe=
rdia argentea) next to my lawn, will suckers extending from the plant that =
typically form new (yet clonal) plants at a distance from the original if I=
put that rubber/plastic weed barrier strip around the plant. =20
