Carica papaya "Papaya", Papayas are self pollinating.

Great patio plant for summer climates and will grow very fast.

Originally from southern Mexico.

It grows rapidly, fruiting within three years.
It is, however, highly frost-sensitive.
Young plants are very tender.

Soil must be well-drained.
Plant in full sun, however will grow tall in shade, but produces less fruit.
They need very good soil, rich in organic matter and nutrients.

Papayas start flowering when they are about one metre tall.

Papayas love heat and sunlight. Try to keep the temperature as warm as possible, with high ambient humidity.
