Pawpaw: America’s Forgotten Fruit

Jan 26, 2017 (All day)

The SENR Seminar Series welcomes journalist and author, Andrew Moore. He will present Pawpaw:  America's Forgotten Fruit in 164 Howlett Hall and 123 Williams Hall.

What is a pawpaw, and why have most people never heard of it? 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 and culture.
