Where do you find Pawpaws? Buy Them? Plus – there’s a Pawpaw Party Coming Up!

“Dear PoPville,

Ever since reading about pawpaws last year on PoPville, I have tried but failed to locate a source for buying them. Any chance you could ask your readers for suggestions? I think they are or are about to be in season.”

You are in luck!! Casey Trees and DPR are hosting Washington DC’s First Annual Pawpaw Party:

You’re Invited to…

Washington DC’s Pawpaw Party!

Join DC Dept. of Parks and Recreation in celebrating North America’s largest indigenous fruit at Oxon Run Park on Saturday, September 14th!

Never heard of a pawpaw? Don’t miss your chance to learn about the history of this special fruit and try some pawpaws for yourself. They are only ripe for a brief window, so don’t wait until next year!

There will be fun for the whole family, including:

Pawpaw taste testing and dishes

Pawpaw tree planting

Live music

Tree tours with your Arborist

Trash clean-up

Family games

Feeling inspired and passionate about the DC urban forest? DPR will also be hosting a Green Hands Program Open House. This is an opportunity for neighbors to sign up to learn more about land stewardship through urban agriculture and urban forestry. Come by the Mother Peace Garden during the Pawpaw Party to learn more!

We hope to see you there!”
