happy with my Pawpaw
I am happy with my Pawpaw trees. It was a slow start and I was afraid that they will not make .Right now they are still small but full of leafs and look beautiful. It should be said that they are a very slow grower and it might take 7 years or MORE to have fruits.

Paw-Paw and Kiwi
It is still too early for the paw-paw. they haven't budded out yet. The kiwi has budded out so they made it through the winter OK. Get back to me in a couple of years.
