Imagine a carefree, ornamental tree with a fruit filled with creamy custard flavors of banana, mango, pineapple, and hints of vanilla. Our most “exotic native” is the largest fruit grown in America, yet it is little known to most Americans. Join us at our second annual Paw Paw Festival. We will have fresh select paw paw’s to taste, paw paw trees for sale, and lots of good info on growing them!
