I would appreciate any feedback on my plan to purchase this Dwarf Pomegranate Tree, Container/Patio/Bonsai size: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003EZ7UTW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?i...

I've never tasted pawpaws fruit.  I enjoy most food, but apples I can take or leave, mostly leave.  I'll buy a Granny Smith once in a while, but don't care for the soft sweet ones.  In fact, I enjoy crab apples more than Granny Smith.

I don't think I've tasted Honeycrisp, but I purchased a jug of Honeycrisp juice, and was not impressed.

When I get some land, I'll probably plant only one apple, and it will be a crab.  Just like me. : )

Josn, that's a beautiful raised bed garden. I see what you are saying about lawn. Ning doesnt like the kawn around mine, and Im giving in to him about that. We are outting down cardboard - ugly - which eill be covered with wood chips.

On pawpaws, KSU has a orogram to develop varieties, hobbiests in other places are working on them. One variety is as different from another as one tomato is from another, or one apple from another. I cant eat Granny Smith - hard and sour, to me - but like most people, I love Honeycrisp. the ones I ate - variety unknown, local, I liked.

Got it, Joan. Thanks. And I love that photo. I'm not into that kind of lawn/garden. Just a "seed and weed" guy.

Kathy, we have pawpaw trees up here, too. I know of some in the family woods, but I've never seen actual fruit. Probably just as well. I don't like them! (And I'll eat just about anything)

Mowing and trimming that lawn would take a huge amount of time.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 22, 2015 at 3:51pm

This is a good start, from Asta Jankuniene‎ Edible Lawns.

I would get rid of the grass. Perhaps chips or ground cover, or whatever works. I can't imagine mowing this piece of ground.

Barbara, where are you? Are you healthy and working hard on that very special piece of ground? 

Comment by k.h. ky on March 22, 2015 at 2:19pm
Pawpaw trees are commonly found growing wild in ky. I remember my gmother loved them. She said it was one of the few sweets she had as a child.

Daniel, The thought of you pollinating all those blossoms just makes my heart jump! What a lover of natural processes. Thinking of all those different varieties of fruits, blooming into the season, and producing their kind must be a sight to behold. 

Your experiment gives evidence, even as it is anecdotal.

I will take mental walks through your orchard.
