Product information "Pawpaw NC1, Campbells No. 1"

Pawpaw NC1, also called Campbell’s No. 1, which is named after the Canadian breeder and discoverer, is a cross of Davis x Overleese (selected in 1976) and is characterised mainly by its early maturity. With NC1 and the also early-bearing Pennsylvania Golden pollinator and companion, cultivation is possible even at high altitudes and in less favoured climates. Another advantage of this variety is this: it is storable for a little longer, meaning that it is also suitable for eating fresh and you have enough time to enjoy the ripening fruits. ;-)
Due to the beautiful, upright growth and the ornamental, dark green-blue leaves, we also recommend using Campbell’s No. 1 for hedgerows. Planted at a spacing of 100-150 cm, a dense hedge emerges after about 3-4 years, which not only looks beautiful, elegant and somehow “different”, but also regularly bears exotic-looking pawpaw fruits. Note: fruits can sometimes be overlooked due to the dense foliage.
Short Description of Pawpaw Campbell’s No. 1
Fruits: Large, yellow fruits, with a yellow peel and yellow-orange flesh, few seeds.
Maturity/harvest: Middle to end of September; also matures in Ottawa, Canada in September.
Flavour: Intensely aromatic. One has the impression of eating an exotic fruit; unlike Pennsylvania Golden, NC1 also has a longer shelf life and does not ripen so quickly.
Use: Fresh enjoyment; the frozen fruits can be processed into exotic-tasting ice cream specialities.
Plant spacing: 150-200 cm; if you want to create a hedge with this variety, which is very ornamental thanks to the dark foliage and the upright growth, you can plant it at a spacing of 100-150 cm.
Location/growth: Vigorous growth, forms a large, very beautiful tree; Pawpaw NC 1 is perhaps the most ornamental pawpaw tree, with upright, dense growth, but particularly large, dark green-blue leaves; it is also suitable for creating beautiful and opaque fruit hedges, however, one pollinator (Pennsylvania Golden is most ideal) per five Pawpaw NC1 should be planted. Hardy down to -28°C.
Pollination: Not self-infertile, needs a pollinator; on the one hand, the self-fertile varieties Prima and Sunflower are suitable, on the other hand, also Pennsylvania Golden. This latter variety is characterised by the well-overlapping flowering period, a similar ripening period and comparable hardiness.
Training/pot cultivation: It is advisable to plant each of the freshly planted pawpaw trees next to a stable pole. This seems to be a bit oversized at the beginning, but remember the weight of the large fruits! Especially in the first harvests from the 2nd to 4th year of existence, the trees are usually overloaded by weight, so that the stake is then necessary.
  • Available February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November

Which variety for the UK (Peter Wadley)

Hi, Which variety would be best for regular fruiting in the UK. I like the look of KSU atwood best but this one seems like it might fruit better? Thanks, Pete
