Pawpaw Shenandoah

Shenandoah (TM) Pawpaw

Asimina triloba

According to Neil Peterson the Shenandoah has been the clear favorite of 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 is superior to its parent. Large fruit with few seeds (6% by weight). Texture is firmer than wild pawpaws. Fruit is often borne in single-fruited clusters. Good yields. Shenandoah responds well to pruning. Fruits ripens early to mid season to late. Zones 5-8 Space 12' circle
