There are three papayas left on the tree from the latest crop: one ripe & ready to be picked, and two still growing. This tree was already in my yard when I moved here. It’s quite tall so it’s a little difficult to pick the fruit. I’ve planted a couple more trees. One of them I started from seeds from a tree in my old place. It is just starting to grow little fruits. The other is only a seedling, started from seeds I got at the Fairchild Tropical Garden. Papaya is very easy to propagate. All you need to do is plant the seeds that come from the middle of the fruit.
