Title: The North American Pawpaw Variety: 'KSU-AtwoodTM'
Authors: K.W. Pomper, S.B. Crabtree and J.D. Lowe
The North American pawpaw variety 'KSU-AtwoodTM' ('KSU8-2' cultivar) is released for grower trial by the Horticulture Program of the Kentucky State University Land Grant Program. This pawpaw variety is a high yielding, medium sized fruited, middle to late season ripening variety, with a unique mango-banana-pineapple-like flavor. This selection also naturally forms strong right-angled branches to support high crop loads. The release is named for Rufus B. Atwood, who served as president of Kentucky State College (now University) from 1929 to 1962 and also led efforts for desegregated education in Kentucky in the 1940s.
