source for paw-paw trees

ThomasCB(7b)June 8, 2005

Is there a nursery in central or north Alabama that has paw-paw trees for sale?

Thank you.

There's a gentleman in rural Decatur, AL that sells grafted small trees of 5-6 different varieties. He's Dale Brooks and you can get his address and phone number from the Kentucky State University website under "nurseries". He's the first one on the list. He has one of the few, larger sized paw-paw orchards in Alabama. Well, I don't know of any other so maybe I'm wrong--but he has more than a hundred bearing trees behind his house. I have never gotten up there when they are coming in ripe but intend to! I think they ripen in late summer here, maybe late July or August. He works a job full time so getting him at home is hit or miss. Good luck. Mike

Try Barnes and Son in McMinnville, TN. They always advertise pawpaws. I used to get a catalog every season but I don't have one handy now. Call McMinnville 411 for the phone number.
