Hey Folks,
Pre-orders have begun for our new book:
 Pawpaws:  The Complete Guide to Growing and Marketing .  It's available here: https://peacefulheritage.com/shop/pawpaw-trees/ultra-select-seedlings/pawpaws-the-complete-growing-and-marketing-guide/
   

This book took over 4 years to write and is based on a huge amount of experience running a professional nursery that is known for their pawpaw trees, working with and around pawpaw trees at every stage, as well as many hours learning and corresponding directly from other experts in the pawpaw world.  It is full of very practical info, as well as very rare and unusual information and details gleaned from many years of working with these trees on a professional level.
I am sure readers and pawpaw fans will be very pleased.  Books ship in May 2021.  Free shipping on all books!
It will also be released as a Ebook on Amazon in May 2021:  https://www.amazon.com/Pawpaws-Complete-Growing-Marketing-Guide/dp/0865719551/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=paw+paws+the+complete+guide&qid=1607890815&sr=8-1

This looks interesting. I purchased ten pawpaw seeds this fall, they are in the fridge now. Would a homesteader find the information helpful for personal use? I don’t plan on selling, unless they produce an overabundance to bring to the small local farmers market.

Hello,
This book is ideal for the pawpaw grower on any level:  backyard or market farm.  It's very detailed but not overly technical.

I very much want to buy this book when it is available again. I have a small plant nursery and have offered pawpaws as seedlings and  sprouted seeds, I sell out every time.

Has the book been revised, or should I go ahead and get the one listed on Amazon?

My new book has the copyright dated 2021.  Looks like original since it also says the first printing was May 2021.
 
I'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
