Allegheny

Key Features of the Allegheny pawpaw:

  • Medium fleshiness. Percent seed ~ 8% by weight.
  • Flavor sweet, rich, a hint of citrus. Texture medium firm, smooth. Flesh color yellow.
  • Fruit size typically less than 8 oz. Very productive to the point that fruit size suffers.
  • Trees will require fruit thinning to keep fruit size over 8 oz.
  • This has been a continual favorite of those who taste it.
  • Customer pressure has persuaded me to introduce this one, even though it is smaller and seedier than I normally accept.
