Thanks! :>)

You'll be amazed how large the little sausage trees have gotten. They're just finishing a new flush of growth. I'll take some pics soon.

No, it's a very sweet variety. The flesh is yellow-orange.

Here's a photo of one which ripened earlier this year:

Yes, they are delicious...and yes my Plastic Pink Plumeria was leafing out, that variety leafs out late every year (not sure why?).

My other Thai dwarf papaya fruits never grow so large and would ripen in late summer (from spring flowers). This plant has huge fruit and it takes about 6 months or more to ripen, which is usually in spring. The plant just started blooming in late August or September.
