I wish I had know you wanted maypops, yesterday. I could have got you a bunch. I might still be able to get you some seeds if you wanted to grow them from seed. One thing about maypops that you need to know is that they can be extremely aggressive in decent soil. They will quickly take over if happy. I have just a few left in a fencerow, growing along with the grass in poor clay soil. I don't think there is enough left to dig more up this year though.

Unfortunately, something has eaten every maypop fruit. I looked around on the ground to see if there was anything left, but found nothing at all. There were a bunch of fruits just the other day, but nothing now. Sorry.
