Did you know that pawpaw (Asimina triloba) produces the largest fruit native to the Eastern US? The pawpaw tree’s fruit has a thin green skin, large black seeds, and smooth, sunshine-yellow, custard-like flesh. Its flavor palate is frequently compared to banana, mango, vanilla, and pineapple. Pawpaw is a deciduous, native, understory tree that grows in deep shade to full sunlight in moist, nutrient-rich forests.

Come join us this year to learn about this tree and taste its unique fruit at the 2023 Pawpaw Field Day on Sept. 9, 2023, between 9:30 a.m.–3 p.m. at the Forsyth County office demonstration orchard in Winston-Salem. Drop-in any time throughout the day. This year’s fun-filled field day will feature tours, pawpaw tastings, hourly educational talks, recipes, trees for sale (while supplies last), and activities for the little ones!
