The North American pawpaw is in the early stages of commercial production. Many people are interested in growing and marketing pawpaws organically. The ripe fruit has a strong, appealing aroma and an orange to yellow pulp with a flavor that is similar to a blend of mango, pineapple, and banana. Pawpaws are hardy to USDA growing zone 5 and when planted in full sun in an orchard setting, trees can produce large quantities of fruit.

Come learn about Commercial Possibilities in N.C for North America's largest native edible fruit-the Pawpaw.

Talks include orchard set up, pawpaw tree culture, and value added uses of pawpaw.

A networking session, orchard tour and tree sales will complete the day. Please call 336-703-2850 to register for the free workshop.
