Which Pawpaw variety to start with? Which produces soonest?
I have bought small Pawpaw seedlings before, but they were dead on arrival.
So I am looking to buy 2 plants, hopefully with some size to them.
I read the sites that now carry Peterson varieties, and one of them has a new rooting method called RPM(?) Anyone know anything about that? Its a patented process that supposedly guarantees thicker, healthier root system and better growing plants.
It seems that Susquehanna might be the best variety, but I also want one that produces fruit in the least number of years from the time I get it. But taste and fruit quality is important.
But also, I dont want tall growing ones. I'd prefer shorter, bushier plants. I guess I'll need at least 2 for pollination, but do they need to be different varieties?
How do they do in large pots for a couple/few years?
