International Pawpaw Conference at Frankfort, KY

Eric from Mohawk Spirits was able to attend the international pawpaw conference at Kentucky State University, which was also the  100th anniversary of the 1916 American Genetics Best Pawpaw Contest! Attendees hailed from all over the world, and many interesting presentations and hands-on demonstrations were enjoyed. Below are the generally-recognized pawpaw “celebrities”, luminaries, and leading advocates for this wonderful fruit:
