Default Quince and Pawpaw seeds

I'm wanting to try my hand in growing Quince, Pawpaw, Persimmon, Crabapple, Pear and Plums. I have fresh Persimmon seeds and would like to find a source for Pawpaw and Quince seeds. I already have a couple pear trees that I can cut "whips" from to propagate more and will probably purchase Crabapple and Plum trees. Any help finding
seeds would be appreciated!

I know a few, mostly old timers, that grow Pawpaws here. They are native to Nebraska. You might try contacting Bob Henrickson from the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum (very approachable) for seed info. The arboretum sells Pawpaw trees, and they start a lot of their stock from seed. He can probably give you some growing tips too. They have an online order program on their website for native plants as well.
