  2. Will somebody answer two questions about Pawpaw?

    Can I grow it in Toronto? Will it survive the
    harsh winter here? From where can I can get its
    seeds? How much time it takes to flower and the
    fruit to ripen? The summer periods in Ontario are
    short and my experiments with growing vegetables have met with difficulties and lot of expense.
    More than if you can send me an e mail.

  3. I wouldn’t be surprised if pawpaw helped cancer, There are a lot of food compounds that can help, they are just not understood. salvesterols are another one found in strawberries.
