Kickstarter Link to “Peterson’s Pawpaws Go Global”


Here you can listen to Allison Aubrey's piece on Morning Edition about
pawpaws. You can also see a video of Neal with Allison on NPR's food blog: The Salt.


Kathy Bilton, a naturalist who is enamored of pawpaws, wrote this article for
her local Audubon newsletter a few years ago, a sort of primer on pawpaws.
Contains many pawpaw links that I do not repeat here.


Kentucky State University's website - simply the most extensive pawpaw site
I know. Contains scientific findings, popular press pieces, audio, photo
gallery, nutrition, recipes, grower advice, etc. What you can't find on my
site, you can probably find here.


Earthy Delights has pawpaw fruit for sale.


Purdue University's website of the Center for New Crops & Plant Products
provides windows to new crops of all sorts. Among its specialty crop profiles
one can find pawpaw. Notable for its extensive bibliography.


The Ohio Pawpaw Growers Association was established in 2000 to organize
and advance the re-development of a pawpaw (Asimina Triloba) industry in
Ohio. This is a good group to join for the seriously fanatical in that neck of
the woods who grows pawpaw trees.


The Ohio Pawpaw Festival is a cool rural confab that includes a pawpaw
cook-off, a pawpaw eating competition, a best pawpaw contest, and a
variety of local arts and crafts and music. Since 1999, the festival happens
every September near Athens, OH.


California Rare Fruit Growers, the largest amateur fruit-growing organization
in the world, expounds environmentally sound culture of edible plants in the
home landscape, and shares knowledge among people interested in edible
plant cultivation.


Lee Reich gives ideas and resources for creating beautiful, productive, and
environmentally sound gardens. His book, Uncommon Fruits For Every
Garden, has a great chapter about pawpaw history, background, cultivars,
and sources. A great book.


Good information regarding tree conservation and conservation ideas.

Andy's Pawpaw Book-2.jpg

"This book by Andy Moore is the best book on the subject of pawpaws, covering history and
prehistory and current efforts to bring the pawpaw into the light of day from the forest shade."
