Here are some pictures of the Pawpaw festival I managed to get to last October in the Netherlands. It was great! They really have all the varieties there and you could see, taste and learn everything about Pawpaws

I had my first taste of Pawpaw and it was absolutely delicious. I had read about this fruit for over 8 years and never tasted one... This is a very very good fruit. I drove 2 hours to get to the Country Winery  http://www.freshplaza.com/article/141943/Biggest-paw-paw-production-of-Northern-Europe-in-the-Nijverdal

They had lots of things going on and were selling Pawpaw trees, seeds, jam, pie and even Pawpaw beer. If you are ever in the neighborhood, go take a look there. He is the only guy that sells Petersons Pawpaws in Europe, he has a license from him and knows Mr. Peterson personally.

Here are the pictures:

A beautiful place and a sunny day:




The propagation greenhouse




The Pawpaw Orchard




Some of the grafted plants for sale






My prize and bounty after a very nice daytrip




Hope you enjoyed the pictures - I'll have to wait a couple of years for my first fruits...

Oh, I almost forgot, this is their website: http://www.countrywinery.nl/

That's awesome, Solko! Thanks for sharing this.
I love your excitement for the pawpaw. Reminds me of how excited i was to finally taste one after hunting them in the wild. Man, I even remember how exciting it was to even locate my first tree, let alone eat the fruit (which came a bit later).
There was a gentleman from the Netherlands at the 4th Pawpaw Conference in 2016. But it was not this fellow. For a second I thought I would be able to say I'd met this man :)
Very exciting.
I think you have several years of a headstart on me....my trees will finally be planted in April 2018, if God allows...
So I have a long wait ahead of me for fruit :)
Jus crazy bout dem pawpaws!
