Episode 19: All You Need To Know About Pawpaws

Broadcast on March 28, 2017,

1.00 to 2.00 pm Eastern Time (EST)

They’re native in large parts of North America. They produce delicious fruit that tastes a bit like mango, banana and vanilla custard. So why are pawpaws so hard to grow? In this episode of The Urban Forestry Radio Show we will speak to horticulturalist Dan Bissonnette, author of The Pawpaw Grower’s Manual For Ontario. It’s a great read where ever you live and on the show Dan will answer our questions about why it can be hard to establish this beautiful tree, how to grow it and care for it, and what to do with the delicious fruit.
