Taste and learn how to grow the delicious North American pawpaw, a fruit native to the mid-western and northeastern US that is resistant to pests and diseases and produces delicious sweet fall fruit with Charlie West, PhD, veteran farmer and botanist. Charlie West has produced pawpaws for ten years in New Jersey and during his childhood on an Ohio farm. Charlie and his family settled on their farm in Branchburg after a career as a college instructor in botany and plant sciences. They will share tastes of the varieties of pawpaws and how to grow pawpaws in the garden or farm.
