Carica papaya 'Thai Dwarf' Fruit

Carica papaya 'Thai Dwarf' Fruit (Carica papaya 'Thai Dwarf')

I cut my home-grown Thai Dwarf papaya in half and put it on a dinner plate. It was super juicy and extremely sweet. Photo taken March 6, 2018.

Yes, I definitely save all the seeds!

Looks yummie! How long takes from seed to fruits?

If you could Andy. I'm up to 2 Solo Papaya's that have sprouted. That's a long way from outdoor hardy and ready to go.
Is the Thai..faster? Hardier?

Yes, the Thai Dwarf is faster-growing and hardier than Red Caribbean. Thai Dwarf has much larger and beautiful leaves, also.

Solo papayas are not as hardy as Maradol or Thai Dwarf.

I can see Solo not making it this year with the 33f and all the March rains. You need me to PM you or do you have my address?

17 Mar, 2018


Yes, I'll PM you.
