We are thrilled to announce that Craig Mauney, pawpaw expert and enthusiast, will be teaching a 2-hour class about one of our native tree fruits, the pawpaws here at the Caldwell Extension Center!

This class will cover the history and biology of pawpaws, and provide valuable information on successful cultivation. We will be selling pawpaw trees during our annual Edible Plant Sale (pickup date: March 15, 2019). Those interested in purchasing pawpaws are highly encouraged to attend this class.

Craig Mauney has worked as an Extension agent for the Cooperative Extension Service for over 20 years. He is presently the Extension Area Specialized Agent in commercial vegetable and fruit production in the 39 westernmost counties of North Carolina.

Craig’s special interests are woodland botanicals and unusual edibles like pawpaw. He grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina in Cherokee County where he had a small sustainable farm for many years. He now has a small forest farm in Zirconia, NC – Shady Hollow Farm.
