Pick up to 60-80 lbs of fruit in a season!
Your Dwarf Papaya typically produces in the very first year. It reaches a height of about 6-8 ft, not 30 ft like some Papaya varieties. So while other trees are growing taller, your tree is growing fruit. Plus, who wants to risk climbing 30 ft high?
Grow your Dwarf Papaya anywhere in the Country. If you're in zone 9-11 you can plant it in the ground, but will need to protect your tree from freezing. In colder areas... just pot in a container and bring inside for the winter. During your Superbowl party, you can walk on over and pick a fresh papaya for juicing.
This variety has a preferred flavor, aroma and texture. Even the peppery-flavored seeds are edible. Papaya is delicious straight from the tree and can also be made into drinks, jellies, pastes and desserts dried or candied.
Your Papaya tree is perfect for growing organically. It's naturally disease and pest resistant. Your tree likes to dry out between waterings, so avoid areas that stay soggy. This variety has a thicker skin, which guards against insects and keeps the fruit fresher longer. The green skin ripens to gold. Inside, the soft flesh is bright orange.
Your tree is self-pollinating. So it produces all by itself. But, each tree will produce more with additional Papaya trees to cross-pollinate with.
This is the most Exotic and Attractive tree that we carry. You instantly get a pleasing, tropical feel.
Go ahead and order your Papaya trees while they are available. You'll quickly start saving money and eating healthier.
