Papaya Again!

I thought you might be interested to know that my Papaya grove put up a few more seedlings again. Have I mentioned that this is an amazing plant before? Here's a picture:
Papaya Again


  1. Awesome! Did you put a papaya in soil and let it grow that way? It looks most cool! Now will it grow into a big tree?

  2. I have heard of growing avocados from the seeds, but never papaya. I have the same question as Tina. Will it grow into a big tree? I guess we will have to stay tuned!
    I love grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, by the way. I thought your last post was most inventive.

  3. Jennifer and Tina, yes I got a papaya fruit and planted all the seeds from it. It took about 4 months for them to sprout. I had given up on them and planted some other seeds by then. The other seeds I planted never came up, but all the sudden up popped all these little baby papaya trees! They should grow to be a big tree if I tend it right. I'm thinking I'll probably end up taking it outside for the summer and bringing it in for the winter when it's big. I don't know but what I'll have to weed a bunch of them out too. The tallest "tree" is about 8 inches tall right now. They have beautiful 3 lobed leaves. I'll have to get a picture and post of the leaves.

  4. Missy, Hi! Thanks for popping by. I have many papaya trees. I guess the climate makes a lot of difference. They require a lot of organic fertilizer. There are male, female and bisexual. The last one is the best but you wouldn't know till you see flowers.

  5. That's so cool! My 9 year old daughter just informed me that whenever she gets pits in oranges she plants them in our empty rock shaped flower pot! Empty as in, everything we plant in there dies. But we keep trying new soils every few months. I told her she is welcome to claim it as her own :)
