Pawpaw flavour, sometimes a bitter aftertaste
Grows well in UK
Can have Excellent Flavour, Wild Pawpaw
Sunflower Pawpaw Description
Large, good quality, self-fertile paw paw strain so they only need one tree to make fruit. Very Late ripening, not suitable for most areas in UK.
Creamy, strongly aromatic pulp. The taste is reminiscent of mango, apricot, pineapple, banana and vanilla. Pawpaw is a fruit that tastes so inimitably good that it definitely deserves a place in the top ten of the world's best fruit varieties.
The variety Sunflower forms oval-thick fruits. At maturity, they are soft (finger pressure) and are usually also slightly yellowish. Just cut the fruits and spoon them out.
If you only have room for one tree and live in the south of the UK, this tree is a good choice for being self fertile (you may need to hand pollinate). It does ripen very late, so in cooler summers it may not fully ripen. If you have room for two trees you may be better off with two earlier varieties or a Sunflower with an earlier variety.
