Doug will be speaking about the history and his love of the native paw paw tree at Arbor Aid and Paw Paw Festival held at Carrie Furnace. The easy to grow tree produces a fruit which tastes like a cross between a mango and a banana. George Washington was said to have enjoyed paw paws chilled.
The event is a fundraiser for Tree Pittsburgh and includes local bands, paw paw tasting, a paw paw beer, paw paw tree sales and much more.
