Purchasing Trees & Fruit

Neal Peterson no longer sells pawpaws, either fruit or trees. He focuses instead on breeding new varieties of these trees. Please purchase from nurseries on the Nurseries webpage. There are retail nurseries besides these that sell his trees.

We are a leading source of pawpaw knowledge. Our focus is on cultivating new superior varieties, and bringing them to the attention of the world.
