Thank you so much Ilinda, I'd be delighted to have some of your very own landrace pawpaws here!  Might want to wait til spring to send them though, as I'm thinning out some saplings from the woods to create a place for them, being that they prefer that shady habitat (or so I'm told)... :) :) :)

Yes, they are an understory tree, but do tolerate partial shade/partial sun.  The largest pawpaw tree I ever saw was growing along a creek bank or riverbank in Arkansas, and it was leaning out over the water a bit, so it did get some good sun for several hours a day, but probably was in shade more than it was in sun. 

I'll set aside some Little Brushy Creek pawpaw seeds for you and send them in about March.

One more reason to eat green plants: The chlorophyll is similar to heme (Fe is swapped for Mg):

That is one of the most amazing tidbits of biology!

RR I really love that fact about the hemoglobin and chlorophyll.
When I had studied Zen Macrobiotics they referred to vegetables as "The Vegetal Mother."
I learned that back in the 1980s. Truth be told I tend to forget how important the dark green vegetables are, and tend to neglect them. Chard, mustard greens kale, spinach, beet greens, Swiss chard, yumm, takes a bit of washing, cooking but so worth it... and of course raw in juices...

Like many, when I learned that in biology courses, the emphasis was on how a common "ancestor" or common ancestor gene (maybe the one for the porphyrin group?) can diverge, giving rise to slightly different genes, resulting in different end products, or intermediate products, such as the closely related hemoglobin and chlorophyll.

And of course it was decades before I made the connection--gee, eating lots of chlorophyll-laden foods will provide a lot of magnesium, an important element for the body.   It was only in the past few years that we've been reading about those 400+ enzymatic reactions that occur in the body,  all of which require magnesium for it all to happen.
