Carica papaya 'Thai Dwarf' with Ficus craterastoma in background

Carica papaya 'Thai Dwarf' with Ficus craterastoma in background (Carica papaya 'Thai Dwarf')

My Thai Dwarf is not so dwarfish. It's huge. The Ficus craterastoma in the background was just cut back to around 8' (3.5m) from a 25' (8m) tall tree. Photo taken June 2, 2014.

I'm so glad my other Thai Dwarf papaya is doing very well. It has lots of flower on it. I hope it starts to develop more fruit soon. I'm guessing it will, as the weather is extremely hot. It loves heat! I'm starting more seeds tomorrow.
