well as talks and poster sessions about pawpaw research, extension, and 
entrepreneurial activities. The Conference will include a “Pawpaw 
Culinary Extravaganza” featuring pawpaw menu items from chefs, as well 
as other unique Kentucky cuisine. This Conference 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 Conference will also offer 
an opportunity to taste pawpaw fruit and tour the Kentucky State 
University pawpaw orchards. The Conference will have a number of invited 
speakers; however, there will also be a poster session and show-and-tell
