Pawpaw Party with Neal Peterson

October 20, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


The Pawpaw tree bears fruit that is large, yellowish-green with a hint of brown. It contains many large brown seeds within the edible fruit pulp. When the Pawpaw trees flower, the fruit is first green and then begins to mature in September and lasts through October. We are celebrating this tasty and unique fruit with a visit from Neal Peterson, a plant scientist who specializes in Pawpaws! We’ll start the evening off with a demonstration of how we use Pawpaw at the Creamery to create our one of our signature gelato flavors, then Neal will talk about this special American fruit. We’ll have samples of freshly made Pawpaw Gelato to taste during Neal’s presentation, and season permitting, fresh pawpaw fruit for tasting and for sale ┬áin our shop.
