Pawpaw Workshop


September 11, 2004

Kentucky State University Research Farm

Frankfort, Kentucky


The workshop objective is to discuss progress in pawpaw [Asimina triloba (L.) Dunal]: regional variety trials, cultivar development, seedling and clonal propagation, germplasm collection, postharvest fruit physiology and handling, marketing and product development. This workshop will be a unique experience for scientists, nurserymen, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts to share information about the production and uses of pawpaw. In addition to presentations on pawpaw, the workshop will also offer an opportunity to taste pawpaw fruit, tour the Kentucky State University pawpaw orchards, view demonstrations on how to propagate pawpaw, and allow participants a chance to sample pawpaw recipes. The workshop will have number of invited speakers; however, there will also be a poster session and show-and-tell session about pawpaw for non-scientists and enthusiasts. The workshop will be limited to 150 attendees, and pre-registration will be required.
