In the article growing paw-paw in pots. The introduction says that paw-paw are not generally available in grocery stores because they are too delicate to transport. I live in Australia and buy paw-paw every week at Aldi. They are green and take 5 to 6 days to ripen. Most are transported from inter-state and survive quite well without any damage. My question is why can’t they be transported whilst green and not ripe, seems like people are missing out on a beautiful fruit?
