“Knock, knock…”

“Who’s there?”

“North America’s largest native edible fruit.”

“North America’s largest native edible fruit….who?”

Asimina triloba, aka The American Pawpaw!”


So maybe the punchline is lacking some punch, but you know what isn’t lacking? Pawpaw Day at the 2023 Farm Science Review on September 19!


On Tuesday, September 19, The Gwynne Conservation area is teaming up with the North American Pawpaw Growers Association to bring you a fun-filled day packed with pawpaw talks, walks, demos, and tastings! Events run throughout the day, 10:30am-3:00pm, and will be located at the Gwynne Conservation Area at Farm Science Review.


Are you familiar with Farm Science Review and the Gwynne Conservation Area? The Gwynne is a 67-acre conservation area where conservation demos, talks, displays, and tours are held during Farm Science Review, September 19-21, in London, Ohio. Featuring a pond, wetland, tallgrass prairie, stream, pawpaw orchard, and forage plots, the Gwynne offers a little something for everyone.


Though September 19th is dedicated to Pawpaws, talks on a variety of natural resource topics will be held throughout each of the three days of Farm Science Review. And new to the Gwynne this year, the "Ask a Master Gardener" table will be on site to answer all of your horticultural questions! A complete schedule of all three days can be found HERE.
