Cooking and Caring for Harriet Beecher Stowe Center’s Champion Pawpaw Tree

August 29th, 2020

The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center welcomes you to take a bite out of history with a culinary lesson and lecture.


Join us, a horticulturalist, and an expert chef for the history of the pawpaw, recipes guests can incorporate into everyday life, and delightful tastings of pawpaw dishes & drinks all while visiting the site of Connecticut’s largest pawpaw tree.


The pawpaw is the largest domestic fruit in North America and its fruit ripens in late August. It was heavily praised in the 19th century and is experiencing a resurgence in popularity for its tropical flavors – a blend of mango, banana and citrus – from a tree that grows in northern hardiness zones like Connecticut’s.


Program fee: $30. Includes food and drinks.
