Was intrigued by the advertising of a "red female" pawpaw. Had no idea there were male & female varieties of the fruit. Searched the Internet and was still none the wiser. It seems there are both male and female plants, but, as for the actual fruit? I don't know about that.
Here's what I found in a gardening advice column:
"For a successful crop, ensure you have a bisexual tree or otherwise you’ll need
to grow both male and female trees. It’s impossible to tell the sex of a plant until the tree starts to flower, so plant multiple seeds".
Really? All very intriguing!
