The fleeting moment is almost here. This zero-shelf-life fruit is native to Maryland, but it requires immediate processing if to be enjoyed. Bring your own vanilla or other flavor ice cream, and a plastic bag if you would like to take home some seeds for sprouting your own trees. Join us in a frenzied paw paw harvest. Learn about this native fruit tree, the story behind this particular grove of PawPaw trees, and how to save seed for germination.

Do you have room in your Baltimore City yard for a PawPaw tree? We’re offering free seedlings grown from seeds saved during last year’s event. Bring home your 8″ tall tree and plant it in good earth. This free event is brought to you by TreeBaltimore and the Baltimore Orchard Project.
