NC-1 is an early ripening variety of Pawpaw first selected in the Niagara region. It produces abundant crops of large and flavourful fruit. NC-1 is also valued for its high pulp to seed ratio which means more delicious pawpaw flesh in each fruit.

Pawpaw is a truly magical fruit. The closest to a tropical fruit we can grow in Southern Ontario, where it is also a native plant. About the shape of a mango, with a similar skin, though the inner fruit is textured more like a banana. The taste is variously described as custard-like, banana-like, and mango-like and even sometimes like vanilla pudding. Pawpaw grows to various sizes, as tall as 25-30′, but the ones we sell are likely to be smaller than that, more like 12′-15′. The pawpaws we carry are varieties selected for their large and bountiful fruit harvests, and also for taste. They are grafted onto seed grown stock.
