PAW PAW: In Search of America's Forgotten Fruit
"Join author Andrew Moore as he explores the past, present, and future of the pawpaw, the largest edible fruit native to the U.S., a unique fruit described as a cross between a mango and a banana. Enjoy a lively discussion that will be filled with pawpaw lore and knowledge, not only from the plant breeders and horticulturists working to bring the fruit into the mainstream, but also regular folks met through research travels.In addition, Andrew will dig a little deeper into American foodways and how economic, biologic, and cultural forces combine, leading us to eat what we eat, and sometimes ignore the incredible, delicious food growing all around us."
