Pawpaw photo for wild Mango Pawpaw was obtained from a collector in Tifton, Georgia. Mango pawpaw are large, native, early ripening and very delicious fruit with yellow flesh reminiscent of a mango. The texture being very smooth. We usually offer grafted plants on seedling stock and Mango pawpaw seedlings grown from seeds collected from our Mango pawpaw trees at the nursery. Space as close as 6' or 14' circles for each tree. Pollination works best when trees are close to one another. For pollination choose a different variety of pawpaw if you order a grafted plant. Select pawpaw or native pawpaw are seedlings. Seedlings will cross pollinate each other. For instance, two seedling Mango pawpaw will pollinate each other, but two grafted Mango pawpaw will not. Zones 5 -8

Shenandoah (TM) Pawpaw - Asimina triloba Susquehanna (TM) Pawpaw - Asimina triloba
Pawpaw Shenandoah Shenandoah has been the clear favorite of my pawpaw customers at the DuPont Circle farmers market in Washington, DC. Even doubters and scoffers have been converted to pawpaw lovers by this variety! It is a real taste treat -- smooth, custard texture, with just the right balance of fragrance, sweet fruity flavor and agreeable aftertaste. This tree originated as a seedling of 'Overleese' and, it must be said, is superior to its parent. Large fruit with few seeds (6% by weight). Texture is firmer than wild pawpaws but softer than the other two varieties. Fruit is often borne in single-fruited clusters. Good yields. Shenandoah responds well to pruning.

Fleshy - only 6% seed

Susquehanna is without a doubt my personal favorite" -- Neal Peterson, "if I had to choose one."
