MICHAEL JUDD
176 PAGES 8” x 9” Soft Cover
Dive into the pawpaw adventure with celebrated edible landscape designer, fruit explorer and author Michael Judd. He shares his own experiences at the Judd family's Long Creek Homestead in Maryland while drawing on the knowledge of numerous other pawpaw pioneers and enthusiasts. The subtitle of this new book–"A Mini Manual for Growing and Caring for PawPaws from Seed to Table", pretty much covers the content. It doesn't do justice though, to the wealth of very readable information, lavishly illustrated with glossy, high quality photos. You will be entertained, educated and inspired.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
