Pawpaw Fruit & Tree Sale
September 28 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Urbanrest Brewing Company will be hosting a pawpaw fruit and tree sale at the brewery on Thursday, September 28th from 4PM until 8PM, or whenever the fruit sells out.
Pawpaw fruit will be available and seed starting instructions offer you the chance to grow this tasty native fruit right here in Michigan. If you want to get a head start growing your own, grafted varietals and seedling trees will be offered.
There will be pawpaw bitters and art prints of pawpaws available by a local artist as well.
Please note that late frost has reduced the amount of fruit available this year. Best arrive early if you want to be sure to get pawpaws this year.
FYI: This is a CASH ONLY event
