    And that's it, this give away is closed! I waited till Monday, for anybody else, but now we have our winners: Eric, theplantman, gnathaniel, and JDW. The seeds will be split up between the four of you.

    I received one envelope already, and that will go out on Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm still waiting on the other three.

    There is evidence that the pawpaw depended on the mastodon and giant sloth for dispersal.
    Pawpaw seed have been found in fossilized mastodon scat.

    fun fact

    There is a suite of fruits with similar characteristics--essentially a large, fleshy fruit with large, hard seeds (Annonaceae throughout N. America and the tropics, honeylocust, passifloras, pineapples, papaya, avocado, cacao, osage orange etc.) that are adapted in a similar manner. We also find things like the Devil's Claw, which rather than be dispersed via eating likely hitchhiked on such fauna. I find this absolutely fascinating, and for one heck of a good read try this one The Ghosts Of Evolution: Nonsensical Fruit, Missing Partners, and Other Ecological Anachronisms: Connie Barlow: 9780465005529: Amazon.com: Books

    For the 4 members who claimed seeds . . . I've only received 2 SASE. If you haven't sent the SASE, do it now!
    For the 2 members who have sent me an SASE, I got them and I will send this weekend.
    I'm sending everyone a PM too.
    Talk to you then!

    theplantman, clean out your inbox so I can send you a message!
