Rappahannock (TM) Pawpaw - Asimina triloba Allegheny (tm) Pawpaw
Pawpaw Rappahannock Rappahannock is a superior tree for picking fruit from. The fruit is easier to spot among the foliage, because of the horizontal habit of the leaves, and because its fruits typically change to a yellowish-green when they are ready to pick. These are large, beautiful, well-shaped and symmetrical fruits, whether borne singly or in clusters. The flavor is superior as well, very sweet and refreshing. This tree originated as a seedling from a tree in the Blandy Experimental Farm collection. Rappahannock has large fruit (though somewhat smaller the two varieties) with a firm flesh and few seeds (6% by weight). Very vigorous with good yields.

Key Features of the Rappahannock pawpaw:

Firm flesh
Good yields
Fleshy - only 3% seed

More regular & uniform shape
Earlier harvest (some color break plus horizontally held leaves)

Pawpaw Allegany Allegheny pawpaw has medium fleshiness. Percent seed ~ 8% by weight. Flavor sweet, rich, a hint of citrus. Texture medium firm, smooth. Flesh color yellow. Fruit size typically less than 8 oz. Very productive to the point that fruit size suffers. Trees will require fruit thinning to keep fruit size over 8 oz. This has been a continual favorite of those who taste it. Customer pressure has persuaded me to introduce this one, even though it is smaller and seedier than I normally accept. Zone 5-8 Space 12' circle
