The Kentucky State University/PawPaw Foundation
Pawpaw Workshop
September 11, 2004

Kentucky State University and the PawPaw Foundation will host a Pawpaw 
Workshop on September 11, 2004, at the KSU Research Farm in Frankfort, 
Kentucky. The workshop objective is to discuss progress in the pawpaw 
regional variety trials, cultivar development, seedling and clonal 
propagation, germplasm collection, postharvest fruit physiology and 
handling, marketing and product development. This workshop will be a 
unique experience for scientists, nurserymen, entrepreneurs, and 
enthusiasts to share information about the production and uses of 
pawpaw. In addition to presentations on pawpaw, the workshop will also 
offer an opportunity to taste pawpaw fruit, tour the Kentucky State 
University pawpaw orchards, view demonstrations on how to propagate 
pawpaw, and allow participants a chance to sample pawpaw recipes. The 
workshop will have a number of invited speakers; however, there will 
also be a poster session and show-and-tell session about pawpaw for 
non-scientists and enthusiasts. The workshop will be limited to 150 
attendees. Pre-Registration is required before the meeting and must be 
paid by September 1, 2004. The registration fee, which includes lunch 
and dinner, is $20.00 for PawPaw Foundation members and is $30.00 for 
non-PPF members; however, the non-member registration fee also includes 
a 6 month introductory PPF membership. Please contact Ms. Jean Ward at 
502-597-6174 for information on how to register for the Pawpaw Workshop
