NASHVILLE, Tennessee – November 24, 2015 – PawPaw Pursuits recently announced an incredible new pawpaw farm and bed and breakfast! The American pawpaw is a forgotten fruit on the rise, so it is their dream to bring the Pawpaw back to being a common fruit. The first mention of the pawpaw in history is the 1540 expedition, Spanish de Soto. It is reported that George Washington’s favorite dessert was a chilled pawpaw, and Thomas Jefferson planted them at his home, Monticello, in Virginia. But today, very few people have even heard of the Pawpaw, regardless of the many articles in NPR. The pawpaw is the largest edible fruit indigenous to the United States. The fruit looks similar to a mango with a custard-like flesh. The seeds are large and easy to remove from the fruit. They taste like a cross between a banana, a mango and a cantaloupe. Pawpaws are rich in fatty acids, have more protein than most fruits, and are high in anti-oxidants, approximately the same as cranberries.
Pawpaw Pursuits intend to create a Pawpaw farm and bed and breakfast to help raise awareness of this great North American tropical fruit. The bed and breakfast will make fresh pies, jellies and jams, cakes, breads and even ice cream and wine from the Pawpaw to sell to local restaurants and stores. Eventually, blends will be made including other fruits grown on the farm. Stays at the Bed and Breakfast will include possible Pawpaw picking, tours of the facilities and cooking classes. Guest will also be invited to hike the wooded portions of the property, or relax in the common rooms. Some guest rooms will have balcony views overlooking the Pawpaw patch, facing sunset, or other natural views.
To help bring this farm and B&B to life, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between December 2015 and March 2020.
Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. Any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Pawpaw Pursuits reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
