Interesting Notes:

The Pawpaw provides larval food of Zebra Swallowtail butterfly.

Five Peterson Pawpaw cultivars will be available at Forrest Keeling beginning Fall 2009. The five cultivars, Allegheny, Shenandoah, Susquehanna, Potomac and Wabash, are each known for firm, fleshy fruits with very creamy texture--just perfect for eating and cooking!
