Hello Friends,
I'm looking for Asimina parviflora viable seeds.
I live in Turkey/Trabzon City and have so many common pawpaw (Asimina triloba) seedlings. Our Climate and vegetation is similar Nort America's except a few plant.

I would like Small-Fruited Pawpaw (Asimina parviflora) too, but I couldn't find seeds until now. Where I can find and buy seeds of this plant by Internet? Can somebody helps me please?

Best wishes...

Pretty leathery flowers. The fruit is the size of a big butter-bean and has big seeds. I don't think the wild pawpaw affords much eating! I had to do some deep research to identify this plant. When the leaves come back in spring, I'll post a photo of the whole plant.
