Native Pawpaws

Does anyone know where I can get a native Pawpaw sapling (also known as custard apple) and, better still for this year, does anyone know where I can buy the Pawpaw fruit when it is in season later in the summer/early fall?

For anyone who isn't familiar with this fruit, the native Pawpaw tree is indigenous to the Golden Horseshoe and produces a fruit that tastes tropical, kind of like a cross between a mango and a banana, and has custardy-like flesh. (Btw, not to be confused with papaya, which Jamaicans also call pawpaw). Incredible that we even have an indigenous fruit tree that produces fruit that tastes tropical.
