This was the third straight summer that I traversed the trails along the James River, in search of pawpaws. Two years ago, I learned to identify the trees; last year, I honed in on the harvest season; this year, I finally got my paws on some pawpaws. Skinny trunks, massive oval leaves, and fruit that looks kind of like green potatoes. The ones that are ripe will fall off the tree if shaken, but the drop to the gravel walkways along the James is perilous and typically results in damage to the fruit.
And then the insects come…. I was fortunate to discover some low-hanging fruit, but also some areas near a creek where the pawpaws could fall and land softly. I filled several bags with fruit and returned to the cidery, where we scooped the flesh away from the skin and removed the seeds before co-fermenting the pawpaw with Gold Rush apple cider… in a barrel provided to us by Vasen Brewing, who had previous used the barrel to age a grapefruit tripel.
One of my favorite aspects of the Foraging Series is giving relatively unknown fruit a little moment in the sun. I was not familiar with pawpaws until I moved back to Virginia six years ago, even though I grew up in Ohio — a state with pawpaws aplenty. The texture is creamy and custard-like, with a flavor akin to tropical fruits such as mango and banana. From a creative standpoint, one of our many blessings as a cidery is the freedom to incorporate fruit other than apples into our recipes.
Mill Race Bramble, for example, was the first berry-infused cider in Virginia when originally released in The challenge is to push the envelope and continue creating fresh and unique recipes. Fanfare, our wild mulberry cider, was inspired by a neighborhood tree dropping purple fruit onto the brick sidewalk in our old Manchester home.
And now, we are pleased to introduce Aplomb, a barrel-aged cider featuring sugar plums picked in the suburbs. Over the course of two summers, I picked about 90 pounds of plums with assistance from Mackenzie Smith and Nicole Martorana my coworkers , and Suzanne Robertson my cosmic mate. Compared to the tiny mulberry, plums are gloriously heavy and provide instant gratification as they fill buckets. My picking method was similar to the mulberry approach: place a tarp on the ground, get up in the tree, and shake branches. This fall, our cidermaker Taylor transferred gallons of Winesap apple cider to two wine barrels provided by Early Mountain Vineyards.
In early November, we hosted Brittany Mullins of the popular Eating Bird Food website and social media empire to help crush the plums into the barrels, then we aged the concoction for three months before carbonating and bottling. We will release it on Saturday, March April freezes decimated our mulberry crop in and , killing the fruit before it could ripen on the tree.
But not this year. The season was a little shorter than usual — about three weeks in June — but we collected pounds of mulberries this year with assistance from our lovely fans and Cider Club members. More than half came from the stately mulberry tree at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens , and after back-to-back failed seasons, it feels particularly triumphant to finally bring this collaboration to fruition.
It certainly takes the sting out of the mosquito bites, berry-stained clothes and my annual bout with poison ivy! We also tried a new production approach, allowing the mulberry haul to dictate the batch size. In the past, we reserved a certain number of cider gallons and hoped for the best with the mulberry pick. We were inspired by our Virginia Berry Cider Jam in April , when we shared a tiny Fanfare batch using the meager harvest of mulberries that we had collected and frozen over the past two summers. As it turned out, packing about 10 pounds of mulberries into a five-gallon carboy resulted in a version of Fanfare that we had always envisioned but never pulled off — deep purple color with a vibrant, juicy berry flavor.
We applied that same concept to this new batch, infusing pounds of mulberries into gallons of cider. This will also kick off our Foraging Series, four new releases featuring four unique foraged fruits: mulberries in January, plums in February, paw paws in March, and persimmons in April. Check back soon for blog posts on each cider! A perfect example is Fanfare, our cider infused with mulberries. This tree fruit typically sets and ripens in the spring, with a picking season from Memorial Day to July 4 th.
Unless, of course, Mother Nature surprises us with a late freeze in April, and buckets of rain in May. But this season, there is a ray of sunshine and optimism. The trees were guarded and wary during the spring, refusing to set fruit until April.

The berries have developed beautifully through May, and in two weeks, we have already collected 60 pounds of mulberries. Compare that to our grand total from the past two years combined: 15 pounds! We are beyond thrilled to announce that the vintage of Fanfare — finally, three years in the making — will be a collaboration with Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
But we also need your help! One of our favorite aspects of Fanfare is that it truly is a community project. Look for dark purple mulberries on trees. A visual tip for locating a mulberry tree: fallen berries on the sidewalk or street under a tree. Pick only the ripest berries, or place a tarp beneath the branches and shake — the ripe berries will fall from the tree on to the tarp. Please note that mulberry picking is a marathon, not a sprint. This is a labor of persistence perhaps even obsession, some would say.
There are no mulberry orchards or patches, so find those wild trees and commence harvesting. After what seems like the longest winter of my life, I am ready to celebrate sunshine and flowers. It is just lovely to look at! And it captures the mood of freshening and new life that is all around us. These types of apples tend to be highly astringent and the compounds that give them their color, anthocyanins, tend to be extremely unstable.
Most of the time, red-fleshed apples will ultimately create a yellow or straw-colored cider. Please savor it! And please savor these beautiful spring days while they last. I, for one, know that I needed it. Since we opened five years ago, the tasting order for customers has been a constant topic of discussion. In the earliest days, I was too afraid to follow the traditional driest to sweetest protocol. With some sage advice from Uncle Myles , we went ahead and put it first. And of course, he was right. We know this because people started buying it more! A more current debate among our team about tasting order has been how to present apple-only fine ciders alongside more experimental infusions.
So we have tended to intersperse the apple-only among the infusions and vice versa. However, this spring we are making what feels like a bold move. We are splitting the apple-only ciders into their own flight in the tasting room.
And it is also intended to give consumers the opportunity to put themselves in the path of history. So we are going to trust people to take the time to really soak that in and appreciate it. Experimental ciders will still be an option, of course. They are among our best sellers and Blue Bee broke new regulatory and flavor ground on infusions in the early days. We are proud of that too!
So while we have the ciders in stock, you can expect to see these ciders on the menu:. In many ways, I still think of myself as a cider purist. I love working with apple trees and all the ways that cider apples vary from one another. I fully accept the point of view that the apple alone is, and should be, enough for any true cider — most of the time. The creation of Hopsap Shandy in the summer of was the first time I wandered down the path of infusions a story for another time.
