Come Taste the Paw Paw

Where:   Country Farm & Home, Pittsboro, NC

When:    Saturday, September 8 @ 11:00am

Wynn Dinnsen of Full of Life Farms Nursery will be sampling his paw paw
varieties and talking about the benefits of growing paw paws in our
area.The paw paw, a tropical tasting fruit similar to a mango or banana,
is the only fruit containing every essential amino acid.Native to North
Carolina, the paw paw tree is more disease resistant and hardy than many
other edible fruits we try to grow locally and would make a great
addition to any edible home landscape or farm.Wynn has been working
since 2009 on analyzing his orchard of 280 paw paw trees to select for
flavor and seed to pulp ratio.
