Pawpaw Production and Marketing Workshop

September 6 • 9AM - 3PM

Pawpaw is a fruit that looks similar to a mango, but with black easy-to-remove seeds amid a pale yellow, sweet, custardy, spoonable flesh that tastes like a combination of mango and banana. Native to the Eastern United States, pawpaw is becoming a popular fruit with market potential among farmers.
