Ce que vous allez faire
We will meet at Fernwood Botanical Garden where we will walk their trails observing many of their unique and rare specimens of plants. I will be pointing out Paw Paw Trees (which there are A LOT OF) and describing their characteristics, habitats, and other general info about them so that you can learn to find them on your own! I will teach you how to tell when the fruit is ripe, how to collect them, and how to safely get them out of the trees without getting bonked in the head with them! I will discuss a brief history of the fruit and how they went from being America's favorite and largest indigenous fruit to being almost completely unknown to us today. I will also offer information on where to get paw paw infused foods in the region now that they are making a comeback in popularity!
I am an avid explorer, hiker, naturalist, holistic and herbal self-healer, and a big Paw Paw Fruit fan! Having discovered this fun, interesting, healthy and sweet delicious fruit I have hunted all over the local geography for it and found many patches right here in Southwest Michigan! Although it grows from Florida to Michigan, Mississippi to New York, a local river here was named for the fruit by Native Americans for it's abundance in the rivers ravines! A little hard to notice these small trees but once you have an eye for them you can find them almost everywhere!
Ce qui est inclus
Everyone will get a chance to try a paw paw fruit right from the tree! Delicious and creamy, sweet with notes of banana,…
