Project investigators tested the potential for production and utilization of the pawpaw as an alternative crop for Iowa fruit growers. Fruit from an ongoing trial was processed and preserved for future marketing.
How can producers process and store pawpaws?
Processing can be done by a commercial pulper and pawpaws provided to be adaptable to freezing, either as an intact fruit or as pulp.
