I have a friend who has a pawpaw orchard that is 20 years old. He has been grafting trees from wild stands that show great promise, collecting various cultivars from across the United States, and doing his own breeding work. Catoctin is his best selection and I have to agree. 

Catoctin's fruit is large with a strong cherimoya flavor. So much so, that a Peruvian man has requested only fruit from this cultivar because it is the closest thing to cherimoya he can find.  The flesh is a light carrot color and the flesh-to-seed ratio is generous. The tree itself is quite vigorous and because of this, it is seemingly less prone to damage by the Asimina Webworm than other cultivars and wild selections.

Overall, this pawpaw has got it going on. We're planning on topworking many other trees to this cultivar next year because it's that good.
