This 2016 release from Kentucky State University's pawpaw program looks like another winner! KSU-Benson™ can bear upwards of 150 medium-large, melon shaped fruit which ripen in early midseason every fall. It was rated very high for both flavour and texture at a recent taste test and has a low seed weight. Orange flesh has a thick, custardy texture and a sweet richness to it's tropical flavour.
