      Selected at Kentucky State University for its heavily productive early ripening round tasty fruit. It has a delicious flavor with hints of mango and pineapple. It is widely adaptable and is an excellent choice for areas that have cooler summers and need an early ripening cultivars.

      The paw paw is the largest edible fruit native to America. Well known in much of the eastern United States, the tree has long, tropical looking leaves and produces dark green, oblong fruit (3” to 6” long) with a pulp that tastes like vanilla custard. You can just take out your spoon and eat the delicious treat. While the paw paw tree grows well in much of the nation, it needs a long hot summer to ripen its fruit and only the earliest ripening cultivars stand a chance
      of maturing in the cooler parts of the P
      acific Northwest. The pulp has big seeds that are easy to spoon out and discard or plant to grow additional trees.
