Hi there just wanted to know if anyone had tried planting pawpaw tree's in Ontario? I have contacted a few nurseries in Ontario and they all say its 50/50 chance that it will survive in toronto. I know of someone who has two trees in their front yard in Downtown toronto. Any info would be great.

Hi Nelson:
I have not grown this plant myself but there is an article about growing it in Canada here:
Hope this helps.

RE: Asimina Triloba

Thank you for the link. I bought two pawpaw plants frum humbernurseries and I guess my condo was a bit to warm this winter cause they already grew about 8" since mid feb. I was told by the guys at Rhoras nut farm that davis pawpaw's should survive in toronto and that there is a pawpaw tree at the mount pleasant cemetery that has survived for many years. So This spring I will plant two in my parents backyard and see what happens.
