WANTED: Ginkgo, Pawpaw, American Persimmon Seed

brandon7 TN_zone(7)January 7, 2006

I have extra tree seeds if someone would like to trade. I have Ginko biloba (Ginkgo), Asimina triloba(Pawpaw), and Diospyros virginiana (American Persimmon).

In case anyone is not familiar with these, I will give you a few of the downsides so you don't plant something that you wish later you hadn't:

Female Ginkgos produce fruit that smells a lot like puke. It's a wonderful, sought after tree. But with seedlings, you will get half females and won't be able to tell the difference until the trees are big. Don't plant downwind of your house.

Pawpaws and American Persimmons have taproots and don't transplant well. I would recommend either planting where you want them to start with or planting out ASAP before the taproot makes them un-transplantable.

All three of these trees produce fruit that would be messy if the tree was growing over a walk or driveway.

I hope this hasn't scared everyone away, but I would hate to see someone have to cut one of my babies down just when it started looking pretty.

I'm not sure what I am looking for in return. Make me an offer or just beg.

This should have been "HAVE" not "WANTED".
