PawPaw Festival 2018

 

PawPaw Festival

Participants enjoyed tasting ripe pawpaws and learning about the Park’s pawpaw patch.  The event was made sweeter with some hand churned ice cream.  Pawpaws will continue to ripen throughout the month of September and into early October.  Visitors can help themselves to this colonial favorite.  Ripe pawpaws should be slightly soft to the touch and will develop brown patches when perfectly ripe.  Look for fruit that has recently fallen from the trees.
