Book: For the Love of Paw Paws by Michael Judd


How to cultivate, harvest, and utilize North America’s largest native fruit


It is hard to eat more than one pawpaw at a go. The creamy rich pulp with tropical flavors ranging from mango and pineapple to banana combine like a satisfying dessert.


The pawpaw, a close relative of the tropical custard apple, grows throughout much of North America yet culturally and horticulturally we know very little about it.


This mini manual by edible landscape author Michael Judd jumps right into growing, caring for, harvesting, and using pawpaws – from seed to table. Judd demystifies fruit growing in direct, easy to follow steps that quickly brings confidence to the newbie grower while expanding the horizons of curious gardeners.


Historically most people have only experienced foraged pawpaw fruit, which can be a hit or miss game for a good experience. That is quickly changing as selected and bred cultivars are being grown and shared.  Judd’s pawpaw manual gets you started right away with the best selections and approaches.


Filled with straightforward how-to, colorful pictures and illustrations For the Love of Pawpaws brings to life easy and successful ways to enjoy the best pawpaws have to offer.


Chapters include:


  • Where Can I Grow Pawpaws?
  • Buying a Good Pawpaw Tree
  • Growing Pawpaws from Seed & Grafting
  • Landscaping Ideas

Book: Pawpaw - In Search of America's Forgotten Fruit - by Andrew Moore


The largest edible fruit native to the United States tastes like a cross between a banana and a mango. It grows wild in twenty-six states, gracing Eastern forests each fall with sweet-smelling, tropical-flavored abundance. Historically, it fed and sustained Native Americans and European explorers, presidents, and enslaved African Americans, inspiring folk songs, poetry, and scores of place names from Georgia to Illinois. Its trees are an organic grower’s dream, requiring no pesticides or herbicides to thrive, and containing compounds that are among the most potent anticancer agents yet discovered.

So why have so few people heard of the pawpaw, much less tasted one?

In Pawpaw - —a 2016 James Beard Foundation Award nominee in the Writing & Literature category— - author Andrew Moore explores the past, present, and future of this unique fruit, traveling from the Ozarks to Monticello; canoeing the lower Mississippi in search of wild fruit; drinking pawpaw beer in Durham, North Carolina; tracking down lost cultivars in Appalachian hollers; and helping out during harvest season in a Maryland orchard. Along the way, he gathers pawpaw lore and knowledge not only from the plant breeders and horticulturists working to bring pawpaws into the mainstream (including Neal Peterson, known in pawpaw circles as the fruit’s own “Johnny Pawpawseed”), but also regular folks who remember eating them in the woods as kids, but haven’t had one in over fifty years.

As much as Pawpaw is a compendium of pawpaw knowledge, it also plumbs deeper questions about American foodways—how economic, biologic, and cultural forces combine, leading us to eat what we eat, and sometimes to ignore the incredible, delicious food growing all around us. If you haven’t yet eaten a pawpaw, this book won’t let you rest until you do.

 A Neal Peterson selection that is smaller than others, with fruits typically less than eight ounces. „Flavor sweet, rich, a hint of citrus,“ Peterson reports.
„Texture medium firm, smooth. Flesh color yellow.“ Fruit size is reported to benefit from thinning. Percent seed by weight is about 8 percent. Fruit size approximately 125 g/fruit at KSU. A precocious, productive tree. This fruit is a favorite of many consumers. The skin stays purely green at ripeness. Customer pressure has persuaded Neal to introduce this one, even though it is smaller and seedier than he normally accept. Appears to be the earliest ripening of the Peterson Pawpaw varieties.



 A Peterson Pawpaws selection and seedling of Overleese(Shenandoah is like a much more productive Overleese), Shenandoah has been described as a "beginner's pawpaw" for its mild flavor. Peterson says it was the clear favorite of customers at the farmers market in Washington, DC. "Smooth, custardy texture, with just the right balance of fragrance, with few seeds" - approximately 7 percent by weight. "Fruit has creamy yellow flesh. Ripens in September in Kentucky. Fruit size medium-large, averaging 150g/fruit and 80 fruit per tree at KSU." Mario Mandujano says Shenandoah is his favorite: "With that one not only can I eat one, I can eat five or six." And "Shenandoah is just incredible," echoes Deep Run Orchard's Jim Davis. Ron Powell says, "The best of Neal's selections to grow in the Ohio River Valley since it is only slightly susceptible to Phyllosticta." Patented 2004; Mid season ripening. This was Neal‘s first variety. Responds well to pruning.

Other Cultivars:


Marias Joy

A cross of Davis x Prolific made by Jerry Lehman of Terre Haute, Indiana. Won Best Fruit at the Ohio Pawpaw Festival in 2012. „An excellent-tasting fruit but not yet available in the trade,“ says Ron Powell. Several cultivars from Jerry Lehmans breeding orchard await release, perhaps including the Perrennial Largest Fruit winner at the Ohio Pawpaw Festival. Medium to large sized fruit; kidney-shaped; yellow flesh; heavy producer. Produces good crops annually, average 8 to 14 oz range, as high as 16. All visitors to Jerry’s orchard love this cultivar. A well-known fruit author remarked it was the best tasting pawpaw he ever tasted. Fruits 631 to 704 gm. Early ripening.


Rebeccas Gold

 Altough this variety is often cited as small, Ron Powell says, "The largest fruit from my planting in Butler County, Ohio, came of Rebecca's Gold at over one pound. A good tasting, very sweet, and soft fruit. When the fruit hits the ground, its usually is mush. Very thin skin. We attempt to pick the fruit before it hits the ground." Selected from Corwin Davis seed, in Bellevue, Michigan, by J. M. Riley in 1974. "Medium sized fruit; kidneyshaped; yellow flesh," reports KSU. "Fruit size medium at KSU."



Sunflower was discovered in 1970, in the wild, near Chanute, Kansas, by Milo Gibson, and is one of the few pawpaws reported to be self-compatible. KSU reports, "Large fruit; yellow skin; butter-color flesh; few seeds; ripens early to mid September in Kentucky and first week of Oktober in MI. Fruit size large, averaging 155g/fruit and 75 fruit per tree at KSU." Derek Morris reports that Sunflower "tends to grow more wide than tall." Additionally, it produces the largest single fruit in Morris's orchard each year. He says that although the flavor of Sunflower is generally very good, he has noticed a slight bitter finish in some of its fruits. "One other feature of this variety is that it is among the latest ripening, so late that growers in far northern areas may not get ripe fruit." Morris adds that Sunflower "is the favorite among many growers and a variety I would not want to be without. It always ranks high in taste tests. It also has nice think flesh/texture and relatively few but large seed[s]. It has been noted that seedlings of Sunflower make especially strong rootstock for those who want to do their own grafting." Sunflower won Best Fruit at the Ohio Pawpaw Festival in 2006 and 2010. "It is one that I always recommend to growers," says Ron Powell.


 Kentucky Champion ™

Is the "Big Daddy" of the Pawpaw Forest. This tree is remarkably resilient. Responds well to grafting. It's a good candidate for climates that are challenged for growing-degree-days (like southern England and northern Europe). The champion tree is the earliest bearing cultivar of all commercially available pawpaw trees. Fruits ripen between 2,483 and 2,845 standard growing degree days. They are large and tasty averaging about 230 grams. The seed-to-pulp ratio is good (about 8.3%). The skin is attractive and durable; it resists dark spots, bruising and other discoloration. The pulp is firm and golden-orange in color with a melon-orange flavor and pleasant lingering aftertaste. It's sweet with a subtle tartness that's been likened to pineapple or raspberry. 


 Tropical Treat

Tropical Treat was discovered in 2013 by Woody Walker on the property of a restaurant owner in Madison County, KY. It is considered one of the better pawpaw fruits with its mild tropical taste. It is very popular with residents of the region with a late-bearing medium-sized fruit and an attractive golden-yellow skin. It is ripe when it looks and smells ripe. It has thick skin, taste sensations: mango with just a hint of pineapple - vanilla pudding. Introduced in 2015 from Cliff England's orchard and nursery, large seeds, keeps well refrigerated. Has been described as one of the best tasting pause breaks on the market.



A selection from the wild by Tyler and Danae Halvin in Iowa. Cliff England reports: „Fruit is eight to fourteen ounces. Great flavor (very sweet, no aftertaste), has a hint of pineapple flavor. Orginal tree was growing as an understory tree and was approximately forty feet tall. Stated to be the largest native pawpaw fruit to be found in southwestern Iowa, not far from Bedford.“ It is 3 weeks earlier than all other pawpaws.



Selected from the wild in Salem, IN, by David Wells in 1990. Fruit; green skin; orange flesh. Ripens mid to late-September in Kentucky.  Fruit size medium; averaging 105 g/fruit and 65 fruit per tree at KSU.

Ficus carica - Figs

3. year old plants in peat-free organic soil about 10liter pots, the plants and the description come from my friend Bernd Rauch

Dalmatie – Buschform 15 liters pot - 73,99 euro


Planting information Ronde de Bordeaux:

• The self-fruiting, virgin fig variety 'Ronde de Bordeaux' delivers extremely tasty, often deep black fruits with red wine-colored, juicy flesh. Because of their small size, they ripen very early - from the end of August - and long - until the beginning of November.
• There is no need to ask about winter hardiness with this variety, because even if it should freeze completely above ground in winter, it will sprout strongly from the hive again in spring and the fruits will ripen on the new shoot. There is a very regular harvest in the completely unprotected open field in all regions with an annual mean temperature of more than 7.5 ° C. In harsher climates, this can only be guaranteed when planting in heat-protected garden corners, as a wall trellis or with a fleece overlay in spring and autumn. Often there are already a few snack fruits on last year's wood in July, as the variety is not strictly single-bearing. The only risk for a full harvest is late frost damage to the young shoots in spring, hail and continuous rain. Total failure of the harvest is almost impossible.
• This variety forgives care mistakes even when kept in pots without throwing all the fruit away. In the pot you can also raise a specimen to become a high trunk if you want to sit under its shade in summer. Overwintering should only take place after a few weeks of exposure to cold and light frosts and then as dark, cool and sheltered as possible. Modern cellars with more than 6-8 ° C prove to be unsuitable.

• When planting in the garden, be sure to put a hand's breadth deeper into the ground. I explicitly recommend allowing natural growth as a bush. Either by cutting it to the stick every year in winter to force it into small garden niches. By thinning out for training as a bush with a hollow crown, if you want to allow the fig to reach sizes of up to 3 to 4 meters in height and width. Soon I will be offering fig trellises, including metal arches and used agricultural fleece, exclusively for collectors. This means you are prepared for any late frost and you can extend the harvest season by 1-2 weeks in both directions.
• You can also put figs in a greenhouse. However, it should be pointed out that pests such as thrips, spider mites and scale insects can annoy the otherwise extremely robust figs. Heated winter gardens are generally suitable, but here too, a overwintering place must be available for the pot as described above

Pawpaw seeds are ready stratified in February 2020!



For all hobby gardeners who like to experiment and for fruit growers who want to start a big plantation!




Many of the Named Cultivars have been found in only a dozen or so seedlings from among hundreds tested.



The large-scale breeding has just begun!




The genes of all offered seeds are good, but the seedlings are not identical to the mother trees! They are genetic offspring, similar to parents but not clones .




In North America , Pawpaws grow in climate zone 5-9 . Step by step, gardeners enlarge the distribution area in the north and south by selections from seedlings.





It usually takes 6-8 years for a seed to become a fruiting tree. Therefore, I recommend growers to buy grafted trees (2 different cultivars for improved pollination) because they will bear fruit in 3-4 years normally.



Growing Pawpaw from seeds is also the best way to get healthy rootstocks for the grafting of well-known cultivar varieties.
