Paw paws

Grower Wynn Dinnsen has a 250 tree pawpaw orchard in Chatham County near Pittsboro. Wynn has spent years evaluating the different trees with plans to select the ones with the best flavor and seed-to-pulp ratio. Wynn sells pawpaw seedlings through his nursery, TriPlants Nursery. He also sells the pawpaw fruit locally. The slide show below reveals two pawpaw customers: Sean Wilson of Fullsteam Brewery who makes pawpaw beer, and Benjamin Filippo of This & That Jam who bought some pawpaws to make his first batch of pawpaw jam!
