**I LOVE plants that can be neglected and still thrive well!**
****GROWN ON OUR FARM HERE IN TENNESSEE ****
Dwarf Papaya (Carica papaya ) - to 5 feet, This papaya is a dwarf variety that bears large fruits at a young age. The fruits develop low on the trunk and ripen in less than a year.
The large fruit turns bright yellow when ripe and has a delicious sweet flavor. Grows well in bright light and average room temperature.
A tropical evergreen plant from South America that produces fruit one year after planting!
Our varieties are all hermaphroditic and therefore do not need a separate plant to pollinate and produce fruit. Most are dwarf or semi-dwarf plants to a height of 5′. Papaya fruit is an excellent source of valuable health giving nutrients as well as generous amounts of digestive enzymes.
A fast growing dwarf papaya only reaching 3- 5 ft. but bearing fruits as large as 2 lbs from seed.
A great container plant!
