Farm Tour: PawPaws at West Farm Nursery

September 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


Growing Pawpaws with Dr. Charlie West

Saturday, September 23 at 10AM

Join NOFA NJ and Charlie West for a tour of West Farm in Branchburg, NJ.

Taste and learn how to grow the delicious North American Pawpaw, the largest tree fruit native to North America. Charlie West has grown pawpaws on his farm in Branchburg for over 10 years and foraged for them during his childhood on the family farm in Ohio. After a career as a college professor of Botany and Biological Sciences, he turned his attention to native fruit trees, especially pawpaws and American persimmons.

The Wests will share tastes of several varieties of pawpaws and a few food items made from pawpaws. You will learn how to grow these amazing trees in backyard gardens and farms.
