Our Kickstarter ship of dreams, launched in January, has finished its maiden voyage. It returned on February 25 laden with treasure, over $22,000, which will enable us to fulfill our dream of popularizing pawpaws in Europe and Japan. We will register our trademarks in those two places.

I know that some individuals found out too late about our project. The Kickstarter page is closed, as is customary for them once a project deadline has been reached. I do not wish to discourage generous souls from contributing to the pawpaw dream of breeding them achieving better fruit, and beautiful ornamental plants & flowers.

If you are inspired to contribute, you may send checks to Neal Peterson at PO Box 128, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425. If you would like to receive rewards, consult the Kickstarter page for Peterson Pawpaws Go Global and surf for the pledge column; the rewards are listed there. www.kickstarter.com/projects/1750376414/peterson-pawpaws-go-global


If you are looking for premium pawpaws, this is the place to be. Here you will find the world's most delicious pawpaw varieties, together with the information needed to grow them, pick them, use them, sing about them, as well as many facts and meaningless trivia.

We are devoted to the pawpaw, to seeing it take its rightful place as one of the fine fruits of the world. We are the sole distributor of Neal Peterson's specially selected pawpaws.

Ours are the very best pawpaws, not only for their fine eating qualities, but also for their productiveness, health and vigor. Ours are one-year grafts on three-year old seedling rootstock.

Our six varieties are the result of 25 years of research by Neal to improve the pawpaw. (See About Us.) They have been tested in the field and laboratory and farmers markets.

We are confident that, if you LIKE pawpaws, you will LOVE our pawpaws!
