America’s largest native fruit grows abundantly throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and is easily cultivated in the home landscape for prime fruit harvests. Join edible landscape author and designer Michael Judd on a colorful and fruitful journey from seed to table. We will sample select cultivars, try homemade pawpaw ice cream, and tour the Judd’s pawpaw orchard and food forest. Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes for walking and bring a water bottle if you’d like!
