Join us for "Pawpaw: The Story of America’s Forgotten Fruit"

Wednesday, March 22, 2017
6:30pm Reception, light refreshments
7:00pm Lecture

Please join the Bucks County Master Gardeners, in partnership with the Henry Schmieder Arboretum at Del Val University and Bucks Beautiful, in welcoming Andrew Moore, author of the James Beard Award nominated book Pawpaw to the Life Science Center at Del Val University.

What is a pawpaw, and why have most people never heard of this amazing native plant or its delicious fruit?

Andrew Moore offers a brief history of the pawpaw, the largest edible fruit native to the United States, and offers some explanations as to why it has been overlooked in modern times. He also provides an overview of the growers and producers working to raise the fruit's profile, and how the fruit tree can be reintegrated into our diets, our culture and our gardens.
