My daughter loves papaya! I wish we could grow them here. My relatives in Florida grow them. It gets too cold in Maryland, Bah!

My father has papaya trees in his yard. One is so tall and skinny that you can see it from miles around! LOL!

Opal, I am glad that at least you can get fresh papayas to eat!

Kailani,
I bet that is the tree the birds go after when there are ripe papayas on it!

Sheila

That link really documented the growth process in detail. Do you think that female papaya trees produce papayas with female only seeds or would there be a mixture? Do male papaya trees produce fruit, too?

HawaiiVacationGifts

I called the Hawaii Papaya Growers Association in Hilo, and they told me that the female tree produces male and female seeds. The male trees do not produce fruit that ripens or matures.

Sheila

Cheryl - Thanks for checking on that!! How fascinating!!

HawaiiVacationGifts

You are welcome Sheila. Let me know if your dad ever plants the papaya seeds.
