Thanks for the link.
It’s always nice to have more European nurseries that sell Peterson’s varieties. Too bad Lubera.uk and Pepiniere du Bosc don’t have Allegheny available. I also would like to add it to my 2 Peterson’s varieties, Susquehanna and Rappahannock. I also have Prima, NC-1 and Mango.
They are still young trees and i know they are slow growing so i have to be patient but can’t wait to taste my first cultivated Paw Paw.
I also had (have?) a very small KSU-Attwood. It was dying and when i uprooted it i saw that some creature ate almost all the roots. This was last autumn. I moved it closer to the others in a desperate last attempt to save it. In that spot the soil has more coarse sand and the gophers? don’t like it, but it doesn’t drain too well because of a clay underlayer,
I checked recently and it’s in bad shape, the only thin branch it has suffered quite a bit with the unusual cold weeks we are having and is half black, but i have some hope it may pull through this spring. We will see in a month or so…
The tree in this photo is my Prima last spring. It’s the one that adapted best and it seems a fast grower. Nevertheless, in the first year i had to improvise some shade, because the summer sun was burning the young leaves.
There is a pawpaw I have had in local tastings that is white-pulped, and definitely much milder than your typical pawpaw. I believe it was labeled “Sue” although this description doesn’t match my recollection.
Shenandoah is not typically that white but I guess this sometimes happens for whatever reason. I had a davis fruit off my tree once that was stark white like your shenandoah but they are not typically that color.
That shen looks and sounds, from the description, underripe or otherwise underdeveloped. So white flesh in that case is not surprising.
The main variety advertised as white is Al Horn, but I had some nearly white Lehman’s Chiffon fruits (fully developed/ripe) this year. Video on my YouTube.
My point being- I think it can happen on some random fruits, not only on Al Horn or other “white fleshed” cultivars.
