Halvin's Side Winder - Pawpaw found by Tyler and Danae Halvin in Iowa. Fruit is 8 to 14 ounces. Great flavor (very sweet, no aftertaste), has a hint of pineapple flavor. Original tree was growing as an under store treel. Stated to be the largest native pawpaw fruit to be found in southwestern Iowa and is 3 weeks earlier than all other pawpaws.
Summer Delight - Just an average size pawpaw of 8 to 12 ounces that absolutely tastes delicious, has a yellow tinted shin that is thick, and ships and stores well. The remarkable thing about this Pawpaw is that it ripens between the last week of July and the first week of August. Here in Kentucky, of all the cultivars we have, it is the first to ripen. It is not precocious and takes 4 to 5 years to come into production, but it is well worth the wait. In most years the fruit is on the ground long before you expect it to be. Summer Delight has a smooth textured flesh, few seeds, and a melon after taste.
