Shenandoah™ Paw Paw
This patented new Southern variety is one of the largest and most flavorful to date, with individual fruits weighing up to 1 pound each! The fruit ripens in mid season and is sweet and flavorful with creamy-yellow, custard-like flesh.
Hand pollination will increase fruit set, alternatively, adding a small pile of decaying meat to the base of each tree just before blooms open will bring in the flies and beetles that pollinate these unusual trees. Shade from direct sun during first 2 summers - even mature trees may benefit from afternoon shade in hot climates. Also protect young trees from slug and snail damage. Requires 400 chill hours and 2200 Growing Degree Days (GDD) to set and ripen fruit.
