Description

New Product!

The largest Peterson pawpaw with the fewest seeds. Fruits frequently weigh more than a pound and have a thicker skin than other pawpaws, making them less prone to bruising. Seed volume by weight is just 3% of the fruit. This variety is super-sweet, with a firm, buttery texture and very rich, intense pawpaw flavor that’s like no other fruit. Moderate to good yields, which can be improved by proper pruning. Tolerant of afternoon shade and is cold-hardy. Ripens in October. Grafted. For proper pollination, plant another grafted variety nearby. May be covered by USPP #15,900 or other patents. ‘Levfiv’ cultivar.
