James Alexander Little (1832-1908) was born in Indiana and planted from seed a successful pawpaw orchard; he was also an author of books such as “What I Saw on the Santa Fe Trail.”

In 1905 Little published the short pamphlet “The Pawpaw” in which he gives a pioneer history of the pawpaw, where found growing, adaptation of soil, some reasons why it has not been cultivated, and directions how to propagate it.

Little writes:

“There is no fruit of such great excellence that has been so long neglected as the pawpaw. It is peculiarly strange that a fruit of so great excellence as the pawpaw should be so little known or receive so little attention. Many who are acquainted with it claim that it is far superior to the renowned banana. Many people could be referred to who would say that it is the most delicious fruit known to man. To us of central Indiana it is as familiar as the apple.”
