The Perks of Paw Paws
Did we mention they're delicious?
Paw paws can be used in place of bananas in any recipe
for a more local, nutritious, and delicious alternative!
The Powerful and Prolific Paw Paw:
Asimina triloba is an ancient fruit that originally evolved for a much warmer climate. Tagging along in the stomachs of ancient megafauna it found its way to North America and is now the sole member of the custard apple family to reach this far North!
If you’ve never tased a fresh Paw Paw, it’s safe to say you’ve experienced nothing like it. Full of vitamin C, magnesium, iron, copper, and manganese, these powerful and delectable fruits have the texture of pudding and an aroma ranging from mango and banana to avocado, peach, cherimoya, and guanabana.
Not all wild Paw Paw patches are productive, but with the right management and pollination strategy, you will be collecting bucket loads of fruit with minimal labor year after year!

Paw Paw Propagation and Planting
How do you turn a hand full of seeds into a forest? Doug will start you with the foundations, so that you understand not just what to do for success but why. Become fully equipped with expert knowledge and have the best shot at paw paw propagation through systematic seed saving and planting success. Learning to work with what genetics you have will allow you to become a plant breeder, an age old tradition and noble cause.
Planning, Pollination, and Management
What makes the difference between a small natural Paw Paw grove and a hyper prolific permaculture orchard? Proper planning and management. Once the trees are in the ground or you found a wild patch, the journey has just started. Learn techniques to leapfrog your tree’s growth cycle while improving soil fertility and fruit production.
Picking and Processing for Food and Storage
Although quite seasonal, there are immediate usage recipes and storage capabilities. By getting bananas out of our diets for months on end in the temperate climates, we will reduce our carbon footprint as they come great distances to those who live in climates where paw paw is grown easily.
Supportive Designs for Various Contexts
Advanced course content that guides you through longer term management of a number of different scenarios.
Advanced Strategy, Tools, Recipes, and More!
This holistic offering of eight different sections overall gives you the full run through of paw paws. This plant is in high demand and its fruits. You can be the next to create a new grafted variety, the next best recipe, or lead people on tours through your paw paw paradise just as Doug Crouch does.
