Carica papaya 'Aussie Red'

from 6.00

Compact Australian Papaya

This compact selection of papaya originated in Australia. It has with rounded fruits 8" around and weighing up to 3 lbs each. Grows on a tall central stalk, the female flowers grow directly out of the trunk just below the large lobes foliage. Grows to about 6' tall. Needs about a year to mature, then has continuous production. This selection has a sweet reddish orange flesh. Needs tropical conditions, best in Hawaii & Florida. A signature fruit tree of the tropics, full sun, rich soil. Easy to grow. Male and female are usually required, but the one is apparently largely hermaphroditic, all the plants I've grown produce fruit.
