    Shaking a tree might not be the best method, but we were having fun.

    Eat a bunch growing up,I’ve tried and tried to get some started ,on my place here.Plenty trees growing in the hills here.I’ve only found a couple pawpaws on them ,and they were different than the ones in floyd co.The ones we had growing up ,had one row of big seeds,where the ones I found here had two rows of smaller seeds ,tasted the same,though.

    You might not if you didn't chance through a patch during the right time ( early mid-september in southern IN) I think critters clean up the ones on the ground up pretty quick. I suppose most of Kentucky would have them.

    See em more in wet areas here in Pulaski County. They are plentiful in places along buck creek however most that I see don't have fruit year in and year out so not sure about how well they produce.

    We have a lot on our farm. Last few years we have had a few. But to many coons and possums to compete with. I like em

    We like sharing them with people that haven't had any for years.

    Ours bared heavy last yr. not as many this yr. idc much for them. I've ate a few over time but... anybody ever use them in pies or something? If one is capable of a cushaw pie or sweet tater pie, surely somebody has made a paw paw pie somewhere down the rd.
