Product Description

Consistent, Delicious, Huge Harvests

Papayas are one of the rare fruits that combine a sweet, candy-like flavor with tons of nutrients.

These fruits are packed with vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and potassium!

Now, you can grow your own papayas, no matter where you live. These are excellent container plants- just pot up your tree in a container and place it outdoors. When temperatures dip, bring your tree indoors near a sunny window.

This is a fast-growing tree with a long single trunk leading up to lush green lobes. You will get a gorgeous color show with your tree. You can expect the tree to be adorned with either bright green or yellow ripened papaya fruit.

They get up to 8 ft. tall, growing best in full sun since it is a tropical plant. Papayas flourish in rich soil with plenty of water and organic matter. Plant in the ground if you're in zones 8-11. As a potted plant, it will thrive in zones 4-11 - almost anywhere!

Your tree can yield up to 80 pounds of fruit per harvest, in optimal conditions. Be sure to add a second tree for maximum production.

The fruit of the papaya is sweet and can be eaten raw. Use them in jams, jellies, drinks, salad accompaniment, desserts, and candies.

The papaya is a customer favorite. Order yours and see why!
