Not really on topic, but...I don't know anyone that grows Pawpaws - or more
precisely I don't know where anyone that has posted about growing them
lives. Over the years several people have told me that there were wild
ones on their property. In each case when I finally got them to take me to
the location the tree was either dead or "missing". The fruit has shown up
so many times in writings that I've always wanted to see and try it, thus
far in vain. Do any of you that grow it live in or near the central part
of North Carolina? And, in season would be willing to show it to me and
let me try it?

Full Of Life Farms and Nursery wants to invite you join us for a Paw Paw Tasting this Saturday. This is the first bumper crop from an orchard of 250+ Paw Paw trees and we are selecting the best varieties to keep in the orchard and saving seed to grow in the nursery. See the attached flyer for more information.

You'll also have the opportunity to tour the nursery, full of great landscaping plants, some of which have been discounted below already great prices. We'd love for you to go home with some of these plants for fall planting season.

When: Saturday, Sept. 10th, 10am-6pm

Where: 2125 Jay Shambley Rd. Pittsboro NC

I thought folks would enjoy hearing this morning’s NPR story on our native paw paw fruit. You can read it and hear it on the NPR website at

Our Chatham County paw paw grower Wynn Dinnsen held a paw paw tasting at his orchard on Sept. 10. Wynn also sells paw paw trees at his TriPlants Nursery.

You can view a few photos from the paw paw tasting and nursery tour on the Growing Small Farms website at
